MRI scan is a painless, noninvasive test that produces detailed images of your body. An MRI costs in Irvine usually between $280-$12,000.
MRI, CT, and Ultrasound scans are undeniably expensive, yet crucial in treating many conditions. Because they carry a high expense, many insured patients with high deductibles decide to wait until the pain or condition is unbearable to get the medical scan needed. This is a hardship on both the patient and the referring doctor as treatment becomes more difficult the longer the ailment persists.
Stand-alone medical scanning facilities are becoming increasingly more popular as insured patients refuse to wait for long periods of time for approval and scheduling of the scan. Additionally, these facilities are a feasible option for uninsured patients who need imaging services. The presence of the clinics is beneficial for patients as they offer competitive pricing with savings of up to 75% off the going rates. Furthermore, these clinics often offer same day scheduling for critical treatment of conditions all the while eliminating the need to haggle with insurance companies for approval.
