Out of pocket expenses

Cost

Cost - Are you concerned with how much your MRI, CT scan, Ultrasound, or other imaging exam will cost you? If your insurance plan has a deductible or coinsurance, or if the exam is not covered by insurance, you may pay significantly more for you imaging at a hospital than you will pay at Forest City Diagnostic Imaging. Please see the table below.

Average Billed Charges Forest City Hospital A** Hospital B** Hospital C** Hospital D**
CT without Contrast $931.00 $974.00 $1,477.00 $1282.00 $1282.00

The table above compares the average charges for imaging exams at several local hospitals to the average charge at Forest City Diagnostic Imaging. The charge is the “list price” for an imaging exam, before the application of discounts, and before any reduction to reflect the rates negotiated by your insurer. As discussed in more detail below, the actual out-of-pocket costs for each patient will vary based on a number of factors, including whether the patient qualifies for a discount, whether the procedure is covered by insurance, and if so, whether any deductible, co-insurance or other limitation applies.

If your exam is covered by private insurance:

To control costs, your insurer negotiates with imaging providers on your behalf for a “contracted rate”. The contracted rate is the maximum amount that an imaging provider can collect for a covered service, and is usually less than the standard charge.  Contracted rates vary from one imaging provider to another, and from one insurance plan to the next. It is important to educate yourself. Before scheduling your next imaging exam at a local hospital, we encourage you to consult with your insurer about coverage, and to ask the hospitals what you can expect to pay out-of-pocket, based on their contract rate, deductible, and co-insurance of your plan. Call us to find out what you can expect to pay out-of-pocket at Forest City Diagnostic Imaging as a point of comparison. Like many of our patients, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Why pay more? Choose Forest City Diagnostic Imaging. Call and compare at (815) 398-1300.

If your exam is not covered by insurance:

If you are scheduling an exam that is not covered by insurance, then, subject to any available discounts, you will be responsible for 100% of the charges for your service. As you can see, the average charges of the local hospitals can be significantly higher than the average charges of an independently-owned imaging center like Forest City Diagnostic Imaging. Before scheduling your next imaging exam at a local hospital, we encourage you to ask the hospital for their charges. You should also ask whether the hospital offers any discounts, including for full pre-payment. Then call us to find out the FCDI charges and available discounts as a point of comparison. Like many of our patients, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Why pay more? Payment plans are also an option.  Choose Forest City Diagnostic Imaging. CALL AND COMPARE!! (708) 675-1068.
