Does Bowtie VHIS cover the costs of colonoscopy and gastroscopy?

  • Updated

Yes. Colonoscopy and gastroscopy are considered minor surgeries, and if an insured undergoes these procedures upon doctor’s advice, they are compensable regardless it is performed as inpatient or day surgeries.

However, if the colonoscopy or gastroscopy serves part of preventive treatment or care, including but not limited to general physical examinations, routine tests, or screening procedures without symptoms, it is not under coverage of Bowtie VHIS.
