I cannot think of any bigger waste of money than hiring an anesthesiologist to put you under for this.for a toothache?for a pedicure?just for grins?I really think that many people want to be put under anesthesia because they are freaked out about the idea of having a scope pushed up their intestines. So the anesthesia is more for psychological reasons than anything else.probably is largely nervousness, but there might also be legal or medical reasonsregardless .in my experience• Doctors of ALL sorts 'bill' 2 to 10x what the Ins. will pay• anesthesiologist IS a bit more tricky because one's surgeon (or whatever) might chose anesthesiologist who's not In-Plan --so two things to consider for ANY procedure(not just 'scopies') -- whether and what sort of anesthesia is appropriate? whether anesthesiologist is "in-plan' for you.(never been an issue for me ...and i've had many many procedures
