Capitol Imaging Services shares a short story about the misunderstanding that even doctors have about healthcare pricing and costs for patients.

On this particular occasion, two physicians told our staff that a local hospital was less expensive than a Capitol Imaging Services affiliate for a particular procedure, a procedure often not covered by insurance. When fully explained by our associates, the physicians didn’t understand that what they thought was the entire cost WAS NOT THE ENTIRE COST.

The fact was when factoring in the hospital’s test fee, blood work and radiology fee, the hospital was actually hundreds of dollars more. Our affiliate was the better cost option for their patients.

The lesson learned for all of us as patients is that even medical professionals may not be fully informed regarding cost, fees and other financial related matters surrounding an imaging exam. Part of our job at Capitol Imaging Services is to help medical practices, physicians and other health providers understand more about the advantages often enjoyed by people who are referred to Capitol Imaging Services. Their patients can avoid local hospitals and medical centers that usually have higher prices and fees for the same common exams performed by one of our independent affiliates.
