Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a disorder that affects the large intestine (colon) but does not permanently damage it. Symptoms include abdominal cramping, pain and bloating, constipation and diarrhea. IBS can often be controlled by reducing stress, making dietary and lifestyle changes, and using medication. Note: Estimates include one year of care for treating irritable bowel syndrome (for example, physician visits, tests, medication, etc.). Estimates are shown for all types of providers that treat IBS.
Note: The estimates below are based on Medica Choice network contract rates. How were these costs calculated?
