Precise Imaging Accepts Medicare

Precise Imaging Accepts Medicare for Diagnostic Imaging Procedures

 

Refer your Medicare patients to Precise Imaging with full confidence — we accept Medicare payments for diagnostic imaging procedures.

 

When you order an MRI, CT an X-ray, your patients have a right to know if the procedure is covered under Medicare. With Precise Imaging, know that when patients ask about this coverage, the answer is always, "Yes."

 

Every physician encounters Medicare patients. The program is vast, as evidenced by these statistics from the Kaiser Family Foundation and the AARP:

 

  • As of 2015, the last year for which data is available, more than 55 million Americans received Medicare benefits.



  • Medicare beneficiaries make up more than 15 percent of the total U.S. population.


 

  • The AARP estimates that the program will provide benefits for nearly 80 million Americans by 2030.


 

By knowing which facilities accept Medicare before referring patients, doctors can help to keep medical costs manageable. They can also save time during visits by eliminating last-minute research.

 

Make an online referral through our HIPAA-compliant form, or sign into the Physician's Web Portal to begin. Precise Imaging staff will take it from there. We obtain authorizations, work with your patient to schedule a convenient appointment, and communicate directly with insurers to arrange billing. All the physician has to do is make the referral and study the results.

What Patients Should Know About Medicare and Diagnostic Imaging

 

Not all independent imaging centers accept Medicare payments. While the last thing you want to think about when you're injured is the medical bill, it pays to ask if any procedure is covered under the program.

 

Precise Imaging maintains ongoing relationships with most major insurers, including Medicare, to make payments hassle-free for all involved. Our staff handles the billing and subsequent paperwork, so patients don't have to navigate the complex world of health care spending on their own.

 

Whether you're a referring doctor or a patient with Medicare coverage, contact Precise Imaging to schedule a convenient, comfortable, and highly accurate imaging procedure.

 

Does Medicare Cover Your MRI, CT Scan, or X-Ray?

 

Medicare Part B covers a comprehensive range of "medically necessary services," as well as some preventative care. These services may include:

 

  • Diagnostic lab procedures, such as blood tests and biopsies.


 

  • Diagnostic imaging procedures, such as MRI, X-ray, and ultrasound scans.


 

  • Reusable medical equipment.


 

  • Some prescription drugs.


 

  • Mental health treatment, both inpatient and outpatient.


 

Diagnostic imaging procedures are generally considered "medically necessary" when a doctor orders them, so they are usually covered by Medicare. Everyone with Part B should be covered, as long as they choose an eligible provider.

 

All of Precise Imaging's 70+ locations accept Medicare, so call us at 800-558-2223 to discuss your case or to schedule an appointment today.
