It has been four months since I had concious sedation for a colonoscopy. My GI doc gave me the IV med. I have been on the phone many times with my insurance company trying to get them to pay for it. I finally have got them to agree to cover it. (They normally only cover conscious sedation done by anesthesiologist THEY SAY) They tell me in the future I must make sure that it is done by anesthsiologist. That is bull, I spent some time in our GI lab and I never saw a anesthsiologist in there once. The GI lab docs always gave it. When I had my endoscopy done the conscious sedation was administered by my GI doc and I had no billing problems. I did have conscious sedation done by anesthesiologist for my cysto/retro pylo but that was done in OR. What are some of your thoughts on this.
