The Cost of Medical Imaging

diagnostic imaging

It is common for patients to be wary of the cost of diagnostic imaging tests like CT scans, MRI’s, X-Rays, and ultrasounds. Focusing on payments and billing when dealing with a health issue can add stress to an already taxing situation. Here is a guide from the team at Alliance MRI to navigate the costs of medical imaging.

The Out of Pocket Cost For MRI

There is typically a low out of pocket cost for MRI’s and other diagnostic tests when going through an insurance company. The cost of your medical imaging depends on a variety of factors including the type of imaging exam, where the imaging is performed, the type of insurance used (if used) or specific plan. Alliance MRI will work with your doctor and insurance company to provide the exam you need. Our primary focus is giving patients a relaxed atmosphere with exceptional care.

We accept a wide range of plans including:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas
  • United HealthCare
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Humana
  • Medicare

The Cost for MRI Without Insurance      

Since we are an independent imaging center, we can offer more affordable MRI’s and imaging tests than most hospitals. We have more flexibility and can work with un-insured patients to make sure they are able to receive the care and imaging exam they need. The final price depends on the same factors previously mentioned.
