Why refer to Capitol Imaging Services?
More and more patients face high deductible health insurance plans. Half of all workers in the United States have health insurance with a deductible of at least $1,000 for an individual, up from 22 percent 11 years ago, according to data from the Kaiser Family Foundation. About 41 percent say they can’t pay a $400 emergency expense without borrowing or selling something, according to the Federal Reserve.
For your patients with insurance deductibles, CIS provides high-quality screening and diagnostic imaging that often translates into lower deductible charges that are the responsibility of the patient to pay.
People - your patients - save money. For the same exam at the same, if not better, quality, why would you want patients who face financial obligations for medical imaging to potentially pay more?
You get the results you need as part of your diagnostic pathway and treatment plan. With our PACS systems, exam images and radiology reports are available 24/7/365.
