If you have not met your deductible for the year, or if your plan requires coinsurance, then all or part of the charges for your imaging exam will be your responsibility. Since contracted rates vary from one imaging provider to another, and also 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 hospital what you can expect to pay out-of-pocket, based on their contracted rate and the deductible and co-insurance of your plan. Then, give us a call and find what you can expect to pay on your own at AAR as a point of comparison.  Call us at 703.824.3260.

If you are scheduling an imaging 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. The average charges of the local hospitals can be significantly higher than the average charges of an independently-owned outpatient imaging center like AAR. Before scheduling your next imaging exam at a local hospital, we encourage you to ask the hospital for their charges. You also should ask whether the hospital offers any discounts, including for partial or full pre-payment. Then give us a call to compare at 703.824.3260
