IT'S YOUR CHOICE!
DID YOUR PHYSICIAN TELL YOU THERE MAY BE A LESS EXPENSIVE OPTION TO GET YOUR SCAN DONE?
DID YOU KNOW THAT FREE STANDING IMAGING CENTERS HAVE BETTER PRICING PER PROCEDURE, AND PARTICULARLY WHEN YOU HAVE TO MEET A DEDUCTIBLE OR A CO-PAY?
Hospital imaging is reimbursed at almost 10x the reimbursement rate of a freestanding imaging center.
EXAMPLE of how this could affect your out of pocket costs:
Hospital charges for scan = $2500
You have to pay $2,500 if deductible not met
You have to pay $500 if 20% co-pay due
Free standing imaging center charges for same scan - $250
You have to pay $250 if deductible not met
You have to pay $50 if 20% co-pay Due
National Imaging Specialists is an independently owned, patient-centered imaging facility—without the hospital price tag.
Your scan read by a Dual Board Certified Nuclear Medicine Radiologist, recognized as an expert in the field of PET/CT imaging.
Pricing that may be less than HALF or greater of what you would be charged at a hospital for your same scan.
Peaceful environment and well-trained technologists.
Don't overpay for your imaging study! You have a CHOICE as to where you get your imaging done.
It's YOUR Choice.
The example to the right shows a ACTUAL recent invoice sent to a patient from Moffit Hospital for 2 CT scans. This invoice shows the patient owes $4030.00 of out of pocket costs for those 2 scans.
Had the patient called our office prior to having these scans done, we would have been able to tell him the FACTS - He could have saved THOUSANDS of dollars by having the exact same scans completed at our office, and
read by our highly trained Nuclear Medicine expert Radiologist. The patient's out of pocket cost savings would have been less than half or even greater. Patient is having all future scans completed at our offices.
It's YOUR CHOICE as to where you have your scan done. Please take a moment to call our office so that we can tell you what your scan will cost, in comparison to other facilities.
We strongly encourage you to discuss this issue with your treating physician!
