“Endosee brought about a mind-set change. By using it, you realize that you’re doing patients a service by getting to a diagnosis as soon as possible.”

“In addition to offering physicians immediate visualization to gather important diagnostic information, Endosee also allows us to perform an endometrial biopsy and hysteroscopy in the same visit.”

“Dramatic shifts within the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services fee schedule in 2017 – and commensurate changes in the private insurance market – have now ramped up [the value of in-office hysteroscopy]… According to national payment amounts, performing this procedure in the office earned an average of $1,382.07 in 2017, compared with $409.60 in 2016.”

“The benefits of integrating hysteroscopy into office practice have been compelling for some time. An in-office approach is patient centered, more efficient, and clinically valuable. It also has had the potential to be economically valuable for practices that are able to perform a mix of diagnostic and therapeutic/operative hysteroscopies.”

“In addition to reimbursement levels, it’s important to consider the efficiencies of in-office hysteroscopy. The setup is relatively simple and requires a dedicated exam room, not a surgical suite... Hysteroscopy at the hospital, or even at an ambulatory surgical center, involves time driving, changing, and waiting for anesthesia.”

Aarathi Cholkeri-Singh, MD
  • Aarathi Cholkeri-Singh, MD

“For our patients… an in-office approach offers less out-of-pocket expense (deductibles), less time away from family/work, avoidance of general anesthesia/intubation, and greater patient comfort from being within a familiar environment. For diagnostic procedures, the patient can be in and out in less than 30 minutes, and for operative procedures, she can be in and out in 1-2 hours, compared with more than 4 hours at the hospital.”

“[Before January, 2017,] higher procedural costs in the office…actually discouraged the physician who wanted to perform cases in the office. [The] increase in the reimbursement for hysteroscopic endometrial biopsy and/or polypectomy…creates a distinct monetary advantage, which along with increased physician efficiency and patient comfort, has led to more physicians bringing these surgeries to an in-office setting.”
