If you have a surgical procedure that requires the use of a surgical assistant, SurgOne, P.C. will not bill for those services unless the surgical assistant is an employee of SurgOne, P.C.. You will receive a separate bill from the surgical assistant. Most insurance companies do not have contracts with surgical assistants, therefore your assistant may be out of network. The surgical assistant may or may not be covered by your health insurance plan. If you have specific questions regarding surgical assistant services or whether an assistant will be required for a specific surgical procedure, please let your provider or the staff know.

At your appointment, your provider may require an examination that includes an instrument called an Anoscope. An Anoscopy is when an Anoscope, a small rigid tubular instrument, is inserted a few inches into the anus to evaluate problems in the anal canal.
To complete the Anoscopy, the patient must undress from the waist down and lie on their side on the examination table with their knees up toward their chest. The doctor then inserts a lubricated Anoscope to see into the anal canal.
There is no preparation for this exam nor does the exam take very long; consider it just a portion of your visit.
When you receive your “Explanation of Benefits” from your insurance carrier they will refer to an Anoscopy as a surgery because your insurance company considers this a surgical procedure. The exam will apply to your in-office surgical benefits.
