Spend less on Your Radiology Exam.

Before scheduling a radiology exam at an expensive hospital-owned center, it is important to know that you have options.

The average price for a CT or MRI performed in a hospital-owned center is $1,855.* By switching your MRI exam from a hospital-owned center, to a high-quality, lower-cost outpatient imaging center, you can significantly reduce your payment, saving you $950 per exam. Furthermore, switching your CT exam can also significantly reduce your cost, saving you $820.**

Major insurance carriers such as Cigna, Anthem, and UnitedHealthcare are decreasing the specific allowable CT and MRI procedure codes that are covered in a hospital-owned center. Insurers learned that their members could maintain or exceed the quality and convenience of their service experience, while spending less when visiting outpatient imaging centers, like Community Radiology Associates.
