Insurance Company Calling?
Know your options
Here in California, local insurance companies are calling patients once they’ve received a pre-authorization request for advanced imaging. This is typically right after you have scheduled your imaging exam. The insurance provider’s goal is to redirect you to a low-cost imaging provider.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Your insurance provider can tell you about your coverage, but not which imaging center to see for your exam
- There can be significant quality and price differences between providers
- You will not be denied coverage by choosing Insight Imaging or one of our affiliates as we have contracts with all major insurance providers in California, including Medicare
