You DO have a choice when it comes to medical imaging exams. Your doctor may suggest a medical facility, but you CAN choose.
Please be aware that when you go to a hospital or a hospital owned private office for your imaging exam you could be charged 4 to 10 times more than at a quality independent imaging facility.
In fact your deductible cost at a hospital facility may be more than the entire cost of the same exam at an independent imaging facility, like Radiology Associates. That’s because many doctor’s practices have been bought by local hospitals and are charging double and triple the amounts they used to charge!
Your doctor may refer you to a medical facility because they have a business relationship that requires them to do so. It’s important that you are an informed medical consumer.
