My friend Sergio needs an MRI on his foot but has no insurance. Do you have any price guides for the Birmingham area?
We're working on adding some more Radiology facilities, including some in Alabama. I'll check to see if we have any in the Birmingham area.
I need an MRI of my knee. I live in San Diego (north county) and have my own personal health insurance where I pay 40% and no deductible. How can I find an affordable MRI and does my dr have to let me go where I choose? Thanks,
You can use our site - click on the home link or the red button "Shop Radiology" at the top right of this blog.
Yes, you have complete control over where you go. Keep in mind that you should confirm that the facility takes your insurance if you are going to use your insurance for the MRI.
I live in West Palm Beach Flordia and my mother needs an MRI on her foot and she has no insurance. Whats the best way to handle the situation?
Your mother will need an order from her doctor for the test. You can then shop around locally or use our site to shop and purchase the test. Once you purchase from our site, we work with your chosen facility and help your schedule the test.
If anyone in the UK wants an affordable MRi Scan
I just used Vista Diagnostics. They offer single region mri scans from £250
not sure how i stumbled onto this website but sure wish i had two months ago. I would prefer not to tell you the names of the facility's because I will be negotiating with the facility shortly for a discount. whatever you do check around for price of mri...i am truly a victim of the biggest rip off ever. had mri of a toe and was charged 2,700.00. i called another imaging center and was told the charge would be 425.00 cash!!!!!!!!! needless to say, my insurance company has already paid the first facility over 800.00 but they are coming after me for the balance. what a joke!!!!!!!!!!! for a toe!!!! do your homework and remember you do not have to get your mri done where your doc tells you; unless of course he wants to pay the bill.
i need an MRI of my back and i don't have any insurance.how do i find an affordable mri scan in new york city area?
why is a MRI scan more expensive at a hospital vs an outpatient center. Also, at the outpatient center I do not have to pay my deductible but at the hospital I do...I have looked into the quality of the exams and reads and I would rather have the exams done in the hospital but it costs so much more....why?? I reside in georgia.
Hospitals have a lot more overhead and are less efficient with their resources. They also have more leverage with insurance companies and can charge higher prices. The quality is the same at both outpatient facilities and hospitals - the use the same machines and in many cases the same Radiologists.
I have a friend, a pastors wife who needs a MRI of her brain. Having severe headache ans a heaviness one side of here head.Can you tell me what it will cost. They do not have the money to get here and pay for the test.Can you give some suggestions.
You can look up prices on the main websitewww.remakehealth.com
or click on "Home" above in the navigation bar. Price will depend on your friend's location. If they are unable to pay for the test have they looked into state funded health care, generally for low income families? I wonder if our readers also have any suggestions...
can somebody please advice me that were the mri scan done in hyderabad in affordable prices and y its done my mother is suffering from back problem from 2 months and doctor had advice her to go for mri scan please advice me what to do if some body knows about this
MRI scan is under 200 euros in most european countries. Cheaper to fly to Europe round trip and get it done there and get a vacation at the same time.
I recently visited doctor in Richmond, VA regarding my HIP pain and he suggested for MRI scan, in the same hospital i went for mri scan and they told it cost 5000$ for my right hip scan. i was shocked. i directly walked out of the hospital. now i am searching some other hopital which can do better job with honesty, not to eating my and my insurance company money.
WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST TEST TO DO FOR KNEE PROBLEM, A MRI OR CT.
THEY SOUND LIKE THEY LOOK FOR THE SAME THINGS. THE CT IS HALF THE PRICE OF THE MRI.
A knee MRI will show tendons, ligaments, menisci that a CT can not accurately evaluate.
Thank you. This article was very helpful.
My son has had back problems for awhile and he was told he needs MRI.. hes out of work and has no ins . where can he go get this done that he can make payments and that is affordable...
He lives in Columbia S.C.
how much does and mri cost for the back or whole body
You can look up MRI prices on the main website www.remakehealth.com.
For a whole body MRI price you'll need to select the different body parts - usually this is an MRI of the chest, abdomen and pelvis.

Thanks for your investigation. I am an Aussie living in America (18 months) and have unfortunately had the 'opportunity' of using the American Health system... wow, what an absolute calamity!!! In Australia, the cost to the public is around $10 to $20... here, we just got a bill for (wait for it...) $1,800!!! The health system here is just one rort after another. The 'people' are the ones suffering under the medico systems, unrelenting and worsening GREED... heaven help us all, if we ever need to rely on the US health system for something serious.
I hurt my back at a water park in Ukraine and went to a private hospital and care center known as Into-Sana. the cost of my doctor consultations and a spinal MRI came to $90! That's NINTY DOLLARS! what a deal! Not like our rip off health care in USA!
can you get the mri with out seeing the doctor?
You need a doctor's order (prescription) to get an MRI.
I am like some of the others. Wish I had found this site a couple of days ago. I had a MRI of my stomach yesterday. I was in that thing for 1 and half hours. I do not know how much it will cost. I have good insurance but still it will be plenty. I know why hospitals charge a lot more. They will not bill some insurance. My son had to go to hospital for an IV for his skin. He had been paying $50.00 his part of almost $6,000.00 at his doctor, that is for each visit which is every 6 weeks. But now at the hospital they sent him a bill for $900.00 because they will not go through his insurance to get the meds.
I went to a small private clinic called Guadalupe for $39 a visit. I'm a nursing student, so I already knew what I had "piriformis syndrome", all I need is an injection on my ass. He said "MAYBE BUT JUST TO BE SURE WE NEED TO RUN OTHER TESTS", that money hungry bastard. The X-Ray there cost me $50, sent me to a Radiology clinic he's affiliated with which added $325. That price is just for Lumbar Spine image, they markdown prices "a little" for people who pay CA$H. Radiology Imaging Center is on Flamingo, the other clinic on Nellis past Charleston. Las Vegas, Nevada
I paid about $625 to an imaging center in the San Jose area for an MRI of my low back. I have an HSA, so this was the full negotiated cost through my insurance company (Healthnet).
doctor has prescribed to take mri scan abdomen. how much is the price? in hospital and in private?
There is a place in Atlanta called Greater Georgia Imaging. I had one done there for $400 I dont have insurance. There number is 6786916134
thanks for useful information in this article. I did call around get prices for MRI for brain with no insurance in my area(Chicago). As of today(2/3/2011), three outpatient imagining services I called quoted price form $375-$500 depending on with contrast or no. I called two hospitals and left message for financial counselor and haven't got call back.
I see no information on mri scan of the breast. The radiologist advised it "just to be sure," after mammogram revealed small spot, but sonogram showed no abnomalities. Please advise.
Recommended breast MRI guidelines include your situation - a "spot" (aka lesion) which can't be completely characterized by a mammogram and ultrasound.
Whether or not the MRI would be helpful is based on many factors including family history of breast cancer, comparing your current mammogram to your old mammogram, and the exact morphology of the lesion, etc.
If you do get the MRI, remember to take your mammogram films to that facility so that the Radiologist can compare the MRI to the mammogram.
Advanced Imaging, located in Lebanon Oregon, provide 1.5T MRI scans for $485.00. We have had people driving over 4 hours to get to us.
I found 2 lumps in my left breast and another painful 1cm lump that is in the crook of my left arm. I'm tired all the time. I have no insurance or job at this time. If I go into the ER...will the doctor order proper lab work and an MRI of my breast and arm? Will the hospital in Houston refuse me or give the least amt of care due to not being able to pay?
The ER doc may or may not order the test because breast MRI and mammograms are not done in the ER. He or she may give you an order to take for a mammogram (which is probably what you need). You should contact the hospital and find out if they can help you with your hardship and apply for local state medical programs.
Do you know the cheapest place in Alaska to get a MRI done? My boyfriend has constant and frequent head acks. We're all getting a lil worried.
And also what doctor we should go to.
I HAD A TUMOR REMOVED IN 2002. IT WAS INSIDE THE CANAL(T12). NOW BELOW THAT I AM HAVING MAJOR PAINS IN THE LUMBAR REGION, BUT TO THE LEFT ON THE SPINE. I AM UNEMPLOYED AND WHEN I FIND WORK I USUALLY CAN'T LAST LONG WITH THE PAIN. THE ONLY MEDS I TAKE IS 500MG NEPROXAN. MY DOCTOR WANTS TO RUN AN MRI, BUT I DO NOT HAVE THAT KINDA CASH. WHAT SHOULD I DO? THANKS FOR YOUR TIME. AARON
Steinberg Diagnostics is a chain in Las Vegas. I called and made an appointment for a week from that day. I was given a price of 580 dollars, with half down and payments for the rest. When I arrived at the Maryland Parkway office I was told that the real price with payments is just shy of 1200. After writing a letter and playing phone tag with Debbie O'Neil Pool it was explained to me that it is one or the other. I was to either pay half of 1200 upfront and make payments, or pay 580, not both. She told me that the only reason for this is that it takes man-hours to send out paper bills and make phone calls. I thanked her for the explanation and that I didn’t want to take up any more of her human-time, out of fear that it would be added to my future bill.
Apathy and greed have been the two primary themes I have encountered within UNLV and Las Vegas medical systems. I think I shall move to Wall Street, where these two characteristics are presented bare and unapologetic, not under the guise of terms such as health and care.
Aaron, What state are you in? In OR, check outwww.NorthwestMRI.com
If your in another state, look up medical discounts... has access to facilities country wide that offer descent prices. Good luck.
I had an MRI on my leg for a torn hamstring and the hospital charged $8,254.00. Of that amount my insurance paid $7345.00. The hospital is trying to bill me for the difference. Trying to get a detailed statement to see why this price was so high. I live in Southern California in the desert....
The price of an MRI these days can be very costly to those that are un-insured or under insured. Our local Doctor stated that his experience is that 20% of the MRI's that he orders on behalf of his patients are rejected by the insurance companies they use. And that is being conservative when ordering them. www.NorthWestMRI.com
is an outpatient imaging center that everyone needs to check out. Even if you are in a different state.
just got a statement from my insurance that my knee MRI (no dyes) will be 3,598.00. this was in an outpatient center in VA. can't wait to see how much i'll have to pay. don't understand why this is so very expensive
Lindsey. Should always contact your insurance company first, before scheduling any procedure like that to determine total cost and more especially, what you will have to pay over and above what the insurance company will pay. This will always give you the option to look around for the best price so you AND your insurance company can save.
I live in small town Texas. Small city to some,around 95,000 people. No imaging centers here so I was told by my (most horrible insurance company in the world-b*b*) insurance company it would cost over $3000 because I had to meet my $1300 deductible first then pay 20% and of course I have an out of pocket max. per year of $2500 and on and on and on, and when I ask what that means, I get-you pay it all. Why not just say so instead of beating around the bush and sounding so happy while doing it. Happy to be cheating so many people out of their money and those people just walk around like lambs being led to the slaughter because the government tells them to. Not long ago, I used to work and I used to pay a co-pay on my insurance for things like this and usually it was $25 to $40 for what now cost $3000 to $5000. This is getting worse and worse. Pretty soon we will all be just like in George Orwells 1984 or Solyent Green or better still Red Dawn. What has happened to our world? We cannot afford the things they are telling us we have to pay for and our doctors tell us they cannot help us unless we do what they tell us to do. Unless I give up everything I have (left) and go on welfare, I cannot afford to live and I do mean live. One day, I will probably die from not getting treatment because I cannot afford any of the tests needed to help me. Pretty soon I will not be able to afford the drugs either like so many other poor people in America. What has happened? I'm not some kind of radical. I am a 61 year old grandmother who can't get a job any more. Something has to change.
Disgusting, the healthcare system in America. An absolute shame to the nation. $1000 to for an MRI...
Nevermind drug dealers. The real crooks are the health care industry, corporations, and so called "white-collar" crime.
I'm frome Italy and I lived in USA. weeks ago I needed a brest RMI, hospital asked me to pay almost 8000!!!! it'a shame, I came back in Europe and I had the RMI for 65 € in 3 days.
There something wrong in USA health system.....
My family was just charged about $7000 for an MRI at Beaumont. Is it just me or does this seem kind of illegal? Thanks to Obama's healthcare plan I can easily dump my retirement fund into Beaumont.
It's got NOTHING to do with "Obama's healthcare plan".
MRI's were expensive long before Obama came into office.
It's not possible to get anything done when half the nation is against your ideas.

I live in Ft Laud, Fl. I need an MRI of the knee. I have insurance with a $2500 deductible, so I already know the insurance will not pay crap. Can anyone point me in the right place for a reasonable price.
Click on the link above - Home or the Shop Radiology button. You can look up MRI prices. Also call the number for an exact quote for an imaging center near you.
I'm doing research on the cost of an MRI scan and I need to know why the cost can be so different at seperate hospitals. Also, any more in depth information you can give me on the cost of these scans would help a ton. Thank you. Matt
Hi all, take a trip to Europe for your MRI. Costs are about 200 euros for a full body scan... France, Germany, Austria, Great Britain, the prices are relatively the same , nothing like the tripple zero numbers like in the US.
at the same time treat yourself to great time!!!
Has anyone heard of or used Medical Discounts International? Seems fishy but not sure. They list MRI prices by State and give a number to call to schedule. Is it legit? Any one use the site?
Medical Discounts Is a legit Company but with the Internet there is no real reason to pay them to look places up for you. I went to a great place in Oregon that did my exam for $485, I found them through medical discounts but I would have rather paid them the extra $50 than a reffering company.
I paid the equivalent of $55 cash for my nephew to get an MRI in Cebu City, Philippines.

I live in southest Oklahoma and an wondering if someone knows of a reliable and affordable place to get this procedure performed. My health insurance is through Oklahoma Blue Cross Blue Shield. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I live in south Florida but travel to europe for all my health care needs. Over the last 2 days had 5 cervical x-rays, 1 ct scan and 1 MRI and 5 ankle x-rays, 1 ankle MRI. All results interpreted of course plus a thorough exam with a neurosurgeon. This was all done in one of the best hospitals in Paris, no insurance, total cost less than a $900 USD. No haggling no waiting no hassling. If the US idiocracy widened up a bit, things would be very different back home. Keep in mind that most of the equipment is US made and costs more to aquire and maintain in Europe. Don't even want to think about how much this would have cost me back home. Oh and The neuro surgeon was nice enough to walk me to the physiotherapy dept and personally have me enrolled for 10 sessions for less than $200 bucks...
Insurance companies are the reason our healthcare is so expensive. They only reimburse a negotiated portion of the cost of test, procedures, etc. - this is the reason costs have to be increased across the board. It's illegal to discount prices if you except certain forms of payment. Insurance in my region pays out about $500 for an MRI, but for a patient to pay out of pocket it would be around $2500. I pay $1400 per semester (I'm now a med student) for med insurance premiums and can't afford my $35/$50 copay for each dr visit. BCBS has recently turned down my claims without paying one cent. BCBS didn't even negotiate a lower price. BCBS automatically sent me a statement that I owe the full amount.
I am helping my best friend who has no insurance, she may have a rare cancer in the gluteus Max muscle & because this type mattastisises easly/quickly she has to get full body MRI to search for any other signs of cancer. Are these full body, cancer searching types much more than the $700 to $1500. .?
look in your local area for a mri scanning place not affiliated with a hosp and never have an mri at a hosp. Tell the mri facility you are paying cash. They will undoubtedly give you a huge discount. try it, you have nothing to lose!

I'm in Colorado and need MRI for breast cancer screening. The facility said "$3060". My doctor said it shouldn't be more than $1000. I call around and they'll do anything to avoid giving me prices.
Some hospitals run specials just for mammograms. You will have to call around to the major hospitals in your area.
