In health care, getting to that level of information about out-of-pocket costs for an exam is not always easy to do. Insurance plans vary and your actual out-of-pocket costs as a patient vary based on a number of factors, including the insurance plan's negotiated rate, where you are at with your annual deductible, your co-pay percentage and any other pending claims from doctor visits, to name a few.
We’re here to help. Contact the local center where your service was performed for personalized information about the cost of the exam and how that applies to your current benefits.
Insurance plans accepted vary by provider, including Medicare, Medicaid, commercial coverage, auto accident, workers’ compensation and government funded programs. Be sure to ask at the time you schedule your appointment if the imaging or procedure you are having is covered by your insurance.
We recommend that you have the following on hand when you call:
- Your referring doctor's name
- The name of the procedure (example: Knee MRI with contrast)
- Your insurance card or let us know this will be self-pay
Depending on where you access your care, the types of bills you receive may be different. You might receive one bill, known as a global bill, for professional (physician) or technical (the actual services and/or supplies) costs, or several bills, depending on the provider.
