Specialty physician complete packaged procedure.
Colposcopy is a way of looking at the cervix through a special magnifying device called a colposcope that shines a light onto the vagina and cervix.
A colposcope can enlarge the view by as much as 60 times the normal size. This magnification makes it possible to find problems that cannot be seen by the eye alone.
The examination is performed for abnormal pap tests, genital warts on the cervix, cervicitis (an inflamed cervix), benign growths(polyps), pain, bleeding.
Treatment cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care.
Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
