Imaging FAQs
How much will my co-pay be for radiology imaging?

Your co-pay depends on your insurance and is usually listed on the front of the insurance card. We ask that you call your insurance company prior to arrival to ensure you know the expected amount you’ll be paying for the services rendered.

Is my ordered testing a covered service by my insurance?

Your covered services are dependent on your insurance as well as your diagnosis from your ordering provider. With our scheduled services (ultrasound, MRI, CT scan), you will be provided an estimate of your co-pay or deductible responsibility by the scheduler. For walk-in services and testing, our registrars run your insurance and ordered tests to ensure coverage for that service.
