Why Express MRI?
Express MRI has a new, straightforward vision for the way medical imaging, specifically MRI, is delivered. We want to provide the highest quality MRI scans, at the lowest possible cost, in a state-of-the art clinical setting.
The healthcare system in the United States has gotten confusing. Along with healthcare costs continuing to rise, individuals and families are increasingly transitioning to high deductible health insurance plans in order to lower the monthly cost of their insurance coverage. Additionally, hospitals and most outpatient clinics are not transparent with their pricing. Think about the last time you visited a healthcare facility for a various check-up or procedure: did you have any idea what the price of the procedure was or what your out of pocket expenses would be ahead of time? Most likely the answer is no. If you have a high-deductible, you are coming out of pocket for all of your healthcare related expenses until that deductible is reached. Healthcare is unlike every other aspect of the consumer experience in America and something needed to be done.
The Solution: Express MRI
At Express MRI we have embraced price transparency and help patients make the most informed decision about where to get their MRI done. Unlike other facilities, our self-pay price of $499 is the total price you will pay. There is no extra charge for the Radiologist fee and no other hidden fees involved. If you are a self-pay patient, you pay for your MRI at time of service with no surprise bill in your mailbox after the fact. Just because we are affordable does not mean quality is compromised. Our MRI machines are fully accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), our MRI Technologists are highly trained and ARRT certified, and our Radiologists are board-certified with decades of experience in radiology.
The $499 price includes:
- The MRI scan
- A copy of your exam on a CD-ROM
- Professional interpretation and a written report from a board-certified radiologist sent to you and/or your physician within 1-2 business days of your exam.
