What do I bring with me to my appointment?
Please bring the following insurance information:
1. Your Insurance card including your ID number, & group number. We will make a photo copy of your insurance card.
2. For workman’s compensation claims and automobile injuries bring your claim number, and the date of the injury. Please inform your Doctors office if your scan will be covered under workman’s compensation.
3. Please bring any outside films that might pertain to the scan being done; this will help the Radiologist in reading your scan.
Do I need to be pre-authorized by my insurance company before my scan?
As a courtesy, we will try to get the pre-authorization on all CT’s and MRI’s. It is ultimately the patients’ responsibility to verify that authorization has been obtained prior to the scan.
What if I don’t have insurance?
We will give you an estimated cost of your exam. We will place you in contact with our billing department to help you set up a payment plan.
Do I have to pay at the time of the service?
We would appreciate at least a partial payment. However, we understand that at times this can be difficult. Our billing office can help you make payment arrangements.
How can I pay for my scan?
We accept cash, checks, Visa, and MasterCard.
Can I send results to more than one physician?
