UnitedHealthcare MRI and CT Policy Update- What Patient's Should Know

Following Cigna and Anthem, UnitedHealthcare is now the third major payer to announce that they are narrowing down what MRI and CT exams they will cover in a hospital setting. In fact, this new policy was implemented as these major payers learned that members could save on out-of-pocket cost when having their procedures done in an outpatient radiology center, not a hospital.
