A woman visited a Capitol Imaging Services affiliate, Diagnostic Imaging Services (DIS), to have her screening mammogram. She works for a physician’s office in the New Orleans area. She had new insurance and her provider instructed her to come to DIS for her test.

However, the woman was willing to go to a local hospital instead for her mammogram, with a willingness to pay the difference in out-of-pocket cost. Unfortunately, the hospital “made her mad.”

She scheduled her appointment three weeks in advance. When she arrived for her test, the hospital still needed to verify her insurance. It took them, according to her, about 45 minutes to do so.

The woman informed the hospital staff that she “had to get to work” and then told them she would go somewhere else.

Needless to say, she ended up visiting DIS.
