Getting a colonoscopy may not be at the top of most people's wish lists, but the routine procedure could help catch colon cancer in the early stages. According to KQED?s PriceCheck, a crowd-sourced reporting project, the price of a colonoscopy in the Bay Area ranges from $1,000 to $5000. Although the Affordable Care Act mandates that recommended preventative procedures be covered at no cost to the patient, some consumers may still be getting billed. Join us as we discuss the varying costs associated with colonoscopies.
