<<I have my much-derided "free colonoscopy" scheduled for the end of the month. Under my old plan with the big premium, a colonoscopy was a $4,000 out-of-pocket procedure.>>

It's "free" if it's a "screening colonoscopy" and you haven't had one in the past ten years.


Yes, I know. This is my first colonoscopy. My doctor has been bugging me to get one for the past 3 years. I told him I'd wait for Obamacare when it's "free".

I recently did a colonoscopy on a man who told me he did not want any polyps removed because his insurance company wasn't going to cover the procedure free of charge if he did.

Sounds like he's worried about a Bait & Switch Colonoscopy. I thought the Labor Dept fixed that?
