Insurance Information

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.

All Metro Imaging sites are preferred providers for the following insurance companies. Due to the large number of insurance plans, your plan may not appear on the listing below. If you have a question about insurance coverage, please do not hesitate to call us.

Our Patients Tell Our Story Best

I am going to contact my physician and tell him to start referring patients to Metro. Since many people now have high deductibles, the cost for my exam was 1/3 the cost of just the technical component at the hospital. And I was offered a 40% discount if I paid at the point of service. I also didn't have the issue of parking and waiting like I have experienced in the past with hospital based radiology departments.

- West County Patient

I could not have had a better experience today. I came in to your center extremely nervous, and your staff made me feel like family before I left. This was such a pleasant experience; I have already told a dozen of my co-workers to visit your location if they ever need your services.

- South County Patient

I only go to Metro Imaging, even when the doctor wants me to go to his or her radiology department. Onsite results plus VIP service are prime reasons why I always come to Metro imaging for my radiology tests.

- North County Patient

I had been having my mammograms at a hospital for 20 yrs & decided to go to your facility this time since you are doing 3D at no additional cost to the patient. I am so glad I chose Metro Imaging.

- St. Peters Patient

It was a great experience. I was there for a routine x-ray and didn't have an appointment. I was only there about 35 minutes, what a pleasant alternative to going to the hospital for an x-ray, not to mention the cost savings! I will always choose Metro Imaging over the hospital.

- Richmond Heights Patient

Metro does an EXCELLENT job. I will never return to the hospital-based system again. I recommend Metro to all of my friends.

- St. Peters Patient

I have been in medicine for over 20 years and I have never seen or used a better facility. Efficient, professional, courteous, lower cost – better than any hospital I have seen, and I have used all in the County area as a patient and physician. I have sent my patients to several facilities, outpatient and hospital, nothing better. So all in all, Metro is the best in town for certain.

- West County Patient

OnSite Results eliminates what could be days of uncertainty while waiting for a follow-up from a physician. I received my results within minutes of finishing the exam.
