When your doctor recommends a diagnostic imaging test such as an MRI, CT or Arthrogram, you have a choice where that test is performed. At MRI & Imaging of Alabama, we are dedicated to ensuring you have an outstanding patient experience. We are committed to providing convenient, high quality radiology services at a price you can afford.
We accept all physician orders, even if they are on a hospital order form or prescription pad. All diagnostic imaging procedures must be recommended by your physician and require a signed physician order.
No, we can request the images from your previous exam(s) so that our radiologists can compare changes that have taken place over time.
The cost of imaging exams can vary greatly based on whether you receive care from a hospital, hospital outpatient facility or an independent outpatient facility. MRI & Imaging of Alabama is an independent outpatient radiology testing facility. Our rates can be 40-60% less expensive than area hospitals and are competitive with other independent outpatient imaging centers. We accept all insurance plans and will also work with you on financing.
Exams will not be performed without prior authorization from your insurance company. We provide all patients with a Good Faith Estimate that includes individual patient details based on your insurance plan and the study being performed. This estimate takes into account your insurance coverage, deductible, and copay or coinsurance.
You will receive just one bill that is all inclusive; the fee for your radiology test and the fee for the radiologist interpreting the test are included in one bill. At the hospital, you will be charged separately for these services.
Mobile Open MRI, Pensacola Open MRI and Panama City Open MRI & Imaging are a network of three imaging centers in Alabama and Florida committed to serving you. Same-day and next-day appointments are usually available.
The radiologist's report will be sent to your referring doctor within 24 hours of the exam being performed.
