Healthcare Costs

COMPARING HEALTHCARE COSTS

At Molecular Imaging, we want to make sure that you are getting the best quality care at the best rate possible. We periodically survey the fees offered by other comparable facilities and hospitals in the area and ensure that our fees are equal to or less than those of our competitors. Our MRI fees range from $300.00 to $600.00 based on the type of scan and insurance carrier guidelines. If you have the same type of scan performed at a hospital, the associated fees would be more than twice that amount. Our fees also include the radiologist fees for reading and interpreting the results of the scan whereas at a Hospital, there is an additional fee due to the radiologist for this service on top of these amounts.

As health care costs continue to rise, and more employer groups are choosing higher deductible options in an effort to keep health care costs lower, more of the financial burden will fall on the patient. At Molecular Imaging, we believe that the patient should be able to understand what they are paying for up front. This is why, Molecular Imaging has insurance specialists on site that are dedicated to helping you estimate exactly what you will need to pay at the time of service. Please remember, you need to let us know that you have additional medical bills from other health care providers within a week or so prior to your scan that will be applying to any deductible or out of pocket maximum that you are responsible for, so we can provide you with more accurate amounts.

If you have any questions concerning your insurance coverage and out-of-pocket expenses, make the right choice and call us today at 630-230-1328

Molecular Imaging is a top level tier provider for most insurance companies. Our sites are ACR certified, accredited through the American College of Radiology, and we are committed to your excellent care.


PAYMENT PLANS

Care Credit

Like many health care providers, today, Molecular Imaging collects out-of-pocket costs at the time of service whenever possible. This helps us keep the costs that we must pass on to the patients down to a minimum. Let’s face it, billing is expensive and who wants more bills through the mail?

To better serve you, we are pleased to provide no-interest payment plans through CareCredit, a personal line of credit for healthcare treatments and procedures. Not only can you use this line of credit for our charges, but also at many other providers and even dentists and veterinary clinics. Or if you prefer, you may complete a CareCredit Application Form.

 

Molecular Imaging Payment Plans

If you don’t qualify for CareCredit, we do offer an automatic payment plan through Molecular Imaging. We ask that our patient’s pay 1/3 down at the time of service, and the remainder will then be taken automatically via an automatic deduction from a credit card.

If this is not possible, then we do offer a 6 month plan with some administrative fees associated with it. We request a payment of a minimum of $100.00 down, then the remaining 5 payments will be taken automatically via an automatic deduction for a credit card.

You need not be afraid that we keep this information on site, as once these automatic payment plans are entered directly into the system, the only information that our staff can ever see again are the last 4 digits of your number. Nothing else is visible to anyone except for the credit card company that processes these payments. They are processed through the credit card company and automatically applied to your account on whatever date you specify.
