The Open Access Program allows healthy patients (No Significant Gastrointestinal Symptoms) to skip the office visit and receive the potentially life-saving procedure.
Participation in the Open Access Program is contingent upon pre-procedure insurance approval and medical history.
If you are a new patient to Digestive Diseases Group or if you are a patient of Digestive Diseases Group that has not been seen in over (1) year and would like to pre-register, please fill out our Open Access Colonoscopy Form and fax to 469.800.6011.
The Affordable Care Act passed in March 2010 allowed for several preventative services, such as colonoscopies, to be covered at no cost to the patient. However, there are many caveats that prevent patients from taking advantage of this provision.
