All-Inclusive, Capped Pricing
BrightWay Imaging’s Capped, All Inclusive pricing model is a revolutionary concept that directly addresses all of the complexities of medical imaging costs. Some of the problems with the traditional medical imaging pricing model include:
Inability to get a comprehensive price quote for your visit due to lack of knowledge regarding insurance coverage, deductibles, and other ancillary costs. This makes it impossible to make an apples-to-apples comparison across providers.
Even if specifics are available regarding the actual charge, many times the patient has no way to gauge his/her potential out of pocket costs.
In many cases, not only will you see inflated costs for your medical image, but you will also incur a separate charge for the actual Radiologist who reads the image and generates the report.
These unknowns are simply unacceptable in today’s healthcare environment, where the patient is often on the hook for the entirety of the cost – even with comprehensive medical coverage!
Capped, All-Inclusive pricing means that you will never pay more than:
$600 for an MRI. MRIs requiring contrast may involve an additional charge.
$75 for an X-Ray
$150 for an Ultrasound
$275 for a Mammogram
If you currently have insurance, your cost may be significantly less than the capped prices above, as we have contracts with most insurance companies that allow us to discount your procedure. In many cases, you will end up paying nothing out of pocket as your insurance will cover the entire cost.
These prices are completely comprehensive and transparent – you will not be billed a separate facility fee, professional fee, etc.
In addition to this simplified model, you will find that the cost of our imaging services is usually a fraction of the cost of the same procedure performed at hospital-affiliated imaging centers. Many MRI scans result in charges exceeding $2,000. We can likely do the exact same procedure for $600 or less. We encourage you to compare costs, and make sure to ask about additional charges such as the Radiologist reading/reporting fee, which is often ignored.
