Colonoscopy is a procedure done by a doctor to examine the large intestine to see inflammation, ulcers, tumors, lesions or abnormal growths like polyps, or foreign bodies.

The doctor uses a long flexible tube called colonoscope which is gently pushed through the anus to the large intestine. Images of the large intestine are transmitted to a monitor.

Colonoscopy is often performed to investigate the cause of persistent abdominal pain, prolonged constipation or diarrhea, thin stool, rectal bleeding, weight loss or body weakness.

Here are 7 types of colonoscopy through stoma, covered by Philhealth:

I am a bit confused but as best as I can figure you negotiate a rate with the hospital and doctor and Phil Health will cover the above deductions.

For those who are retired military, they should be careful about this. Once you turn 65, if you opt out of Part B of Medicare, you are also opting out of Tricare. Tricare for Life depends on the money

I don’t believe the part B will be required unless you opt to have the coverage.  You can refuse the option of part B.  The risk is, if you opt to NOT accept the part B, and later decide you want the

If you are referring to gay physicians, one of the most well respected Internists here is homosexual. He is highly recommended and gets referrals regularly. Not sure if he does any comedy acts.
