    Colonoscopy and insurance coverage

    Had a colonoscopy at 50 that was covered by insurance. Had several polyps removed. Now with new insurance and high deductible, they say that it's now a diagnostic procedure, not preventative. My Mom died from colon cancer so I'm worried. Is there some way my new insurance will cover the colonoscopy? I can't afford the deductible so I can't have it done unless they will pay for it. Any advice on this situation would be appreciated.
