Financial Arrangements

Our billing team will be glad to submit the claim to your insurance company or Medicare for Bay Area Endoscopy and Surgery Center charges. Standard outpatient procedures are usually covered or partially covered by your medical insurance or Medicare. You will receive a separate bill from the anesthesiologist. You may also receive a bill for any laboratory, pathology, or diagnostic services that you receive.

By clicking here you will find a link to the AHCA’s pricing website. We inform patients and prospective patients that the service bundle information is a non-personalized estimate of costs that maybe incur by the patient for anticipated services and that actual costs will be based on services actually provided to the patient. Patients and prospective patients have a right to request a personalized estimate from the center. 

Depending on your coverage, you will be asked for pre-payment for any co-pay, co-insurance or deductible prior to the date of your procedure. This payment will be required prior to making your appointment at our surgical center.

For your convenience, we accept MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and Discover credit cards. We also accept cashier’s checks, money orders and cash.

If you have not heard from us within 48 hours before your procedure, or if you have any questions regarding any of this information, please call us at (727)443-4299.

Patient Reviews

" I have been having my endoscopy with Dr. Kamath for the past 4 years. I would recommend anyone to have their procedures done at this facility. The staff is professional, loving and efficient. Everyone knows what they are doing so there’s no confusion. Dr. Kamath greets me with a smile each time I’ve met him and handled my visits to his office like I’m a human being and never a number. The facility is clean . Smells and looks great and my favorite of all is… I never wait long. The office gives you an appointment, and they take you on time. I’ll go to dr Kamath and recommend him always."
