Metro Imaging is an approved provider for most major insurance carriers and health plans. We will submit your claim - and any secondary claims - to any insurance company under the benefit coverage you specify, including workers' compensation, auto insurance, and personal injury. This is one of the services that sets Metro Imaging apart.
If you do not have medical insurance and/or you are concerned about paying for your procedure, contact us and we will give you an approximate cost. You will receive a 20% discount off our charge for x-rays and a 40% discount on all other exams when you pay in full at the time of your exam.
Please bear in mind that Metro Imaging practices global billing; our invoices reflect the charge for the exam (technical component) and for the interpretation (professional component).
To streamline the registration process and minimize your personal expenses, it is important to take the following steps before your appointment:
Step 1: Find out if your policy or plan requires a preauthorization or referral. If so, contact your insurance company and/or physician and find out what you need to do to obtain one.
Step 2: Give Metro Imaging complete insurance information, including insurance card, name and address of your plan or insurer(s), name and address of your claims payer (if different from insurer), your ID and group numbers, and the name of the policyholder or subscriber. If applicable, for workers' compensation, automobile, or personal injury cases, we require the name and address of your attorney as well.
Ultimately, the patient is responsible for payment of the account, including any balance not covered by insurance. You will receive a monthly statement indicating any deductible or patient responsibility until the balance is paid. Please contact your insurer or health care plan if no payment has been made within 45 days after the date of service.
