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 less than or equal to 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 were to do the same type of scan performed at a hospital, the associated fees would be more than twice that amount. Our fees also include radiologist fees for reading and interpreting the results of the scan, whereas at a hospital, there is an additional fee for this service on top of the original price.

Insurance Specialists

As healthcare costs continue to rise, more employer groups are choosing higher deductible options in an effort to keep healthcare costs lower, so more of the financial burden is falling 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 on-site insurance specialists to help estimate exactly what you will need to pay at the time of service. Please let us know a week or so prior to your scan if you have additional medical bills from other health care providers that will be applied to any deductible or out of pocket maximum that you are responsible for so that we can provide you with more accurate pricing.

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

Payment Plans

Care Credit

Like many healthcare 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 patients to a minimum, because 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 Care Credit, a personal line of credit for healthcare treatments and procedures. Not only can you use this line of credit for our charges, it also applies to many other providers including some dentists and veterinary clinics at 0% down for the first year.  If you would like, you may complete a Care Credit Application Form.

Molecular Imaging Payment Plans

If you don’t qualify for Care Credit, we do offer an automatic payment plan through Molecular Imaging for scans priced above $250.00. We ask that our patients pay $250.00 down at the time of service, and the remainder will then be taken in two installments via cash, check, Care Credit or an automatic deduction from a credit card.

If this is not possible, we do offer a 6 month plan with a 10% administrative fee. We request a minimum payment of of $250.00 down.  Accepted payment methods: Cash, Check/Credit/Debit Cards and Care Credit

Once these automatic payment plans are entered directly into the system, the only information that our staff can see are the last 4 digits of your number. Nothing else is visible to anyone except for the credit card company that processes these payments, so your information is secure and hidden from hackers.  The charges are then processed by the credit card company and automatically applied to your account on whatever date you specify.
