According to an article once published in Consumer Reports, a woman paid $9,038 for a CT scan in an ER that ran $318 in an outpatient imaging clinic.
If gas stations worked like health care, you wouldn’t find out until the pump switched off whether you paid $3 or $30 a gallon. If clothes shopping worked like health care, you might pay $80 for a pair of jeans at your local boutique and $400 for the identical pair at the nearest department store—and the clothes wouldn’t have price tags on them.
While it may be challenging, even difficult or nearly impossible, to find out the price of health care ahead of time when dealing with hospitals and health systems, Capitol Imaging Services can tell you what the estimated price of the exam will be and identify copayments or coinsurance obligations as a result of your health plan deductible.
Knowing before going! What a revelation in health care!
Capitol Imaging Services has decades of experience in working with individuals, medical offices and insurance companies (including Medicare and Medicaid) to assist you in navigating the confusing and often aggravating world of health care pricing, insurance and benefits. See for yourself. Call a hospital and ask them for the price of your service (i.e. MRI of the knee with and without contrast, blood panel, chest x-ray, etc.). If they cannot provide that price, or transfer you multiple times to different departments, ask yourself the question, “would you buy something without knowing the price?”

Capitol Imaging Services is the largest independent radiology practice of its type serving the Southeastern United States. Not only do we perform the scan, such as a CT or MRI, we provide the radiology expertise to review test images and issue critical findings to physicians and other health care providers.
Because of how we work, we often lower out of pocket costs for people by performing our scans at lower fees. For people with unfulfilled health insurance deductibles, that’s a major financial advantage. And, that advantage is enjoyed without sacrificing quality of care, technology or radiology expertise.
