Fees and Insurance

The West Shore Endoscopy Center (WSEC) is a Pennsylvania Department of Health licensed, Medicare approved and Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) accredited Ambulatory Endoscopy Center. Endoscopy procedures may be performed in this facility by any doctor who is qualified and granted privileges by the governing board of WSEC. As at a hospital or other Ambulatory Surgical Center, there is a facility fee for the use of the facility, its personnel and equipment. This fee is separate from the doctor’s professional fee and anesthesia services provided by the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.
