Knee MRI w/o Contrast
Amount: $2,140.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: No Mercy At Mercy Hospital! in Berryville, AR.Posted: April 3rd, 2015 08:04AM
Medical Center: Mercy Hospital Berryville ARInsurance: UHC
Amount Not Covered by Insurance: 1502
Was quoted $700 by the hospital upon arrival. Was billed $2,140, with a $644 reduction by the insurance agreement, leaving a $1502 balance, more than twice what we were quoted. Their only answer? It was "just an estimate", and pay in full or we turn you over to collection. They tried to say the $700 "estimate" was based on our 20% co-pay, but that doesn't compute, as 20% of the fee charged would have been only around $400! Our insurance company "health care cost estimator" shows we should have been charged between $731 and $981 for the procedure. Note the year is off, as the site only let us select 2014, not 2015.

Amount Not Covered by Insurance: No Insurance
I'm a 62 year old woman who needed the above procedure. I cannot pay the least expensive insurance at $633.00 per month so I opted not to have health insurance. Memorial Care was professional, reasonably priced and did an excellent job. Good luck to all.

This is a scam place they said they got a clear picture i asked before i left after fifteen min i reach the physical therapy office and not it was clear they wanted to charge me agian and come back same thing agian lied to may face and then said i was difficult. so i guess my scan is not clear but im still getting surgery for some reason the person reading it said i was fine .. they made phoney bill saying my scan was billed on the same day .. pieced together a paper to make it my finacial responsiblity i never signed that paper it was fraud.. so i contend how would they know if they charge 2000.oo and give you no complete clean scan when do realize that the machine is broken.. i didnt move and they forgot me under the machine they were haveing a party the first time ..90 plus for an elbow i say something fishy if you charge someone that amount of money and not produce what i came for correctly something off..

Head and Neck and Lower Lumbar MRI- 2 back to back
Amount: $1,125.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: Paul Thomas in Lebanon, OR.Posted: December 4th, 2013 10:12AM
Medical Center: Northwest MRIInsurance: Self Pay
Amount Not Covered by Insurance: 1,125.00
I had back pain and no insurance. Longview WA wanted $6000.00 plus a charge for reading the two MRI's. I drove 300 miles round trip to Lebanon OR and saved $5000.00 plus.
No script needed, make appointment and let them do the work. Found out what I needed to find out. Good place to go. They raised their price a little but are still the best price around.

Lumbar MRI in Bozeman, MT
Amount: $1,600.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: K.W. in Bozeman, MT.Posted: September 23rd, 2013 01:09PM
Amount Not Covered by Insurance: $161
I went in expecting to pay 20% of $1600. Hospital was straightforward and gave me a bill before the procedure in case I wanted to opt out. My insurance didn't allow them to charge $1600, only $850,so I paid the 20% of $850. This sounded like an unbelievable deal to me but it was true! TGF good insurance!

This is a great place that really was a life saver. Needed a lumbar MRI. Had no insurance but my doctor gave me a script. Called this place and was amazed at the price versus what I would have paid had insurance.
