WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE SUSQUEHANNA VALLEY DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING
My doctor wants me to go somewhere else for my imaging study, do I have a choice?
YES! You always have a choice when it comes to where you want to go for your imaging studies. Tell your doctor you want to go to Susquehanna Valley Diagnostic Imaging(SVDI) located at 6850 Lows Rd., Bloomsburg Pa 17815 for your MRI, Cat Scan, Ultrasound, Mammo, Dexa or Xray needs.
Why can a hospital cost me more for the same study?
Do all outpatient imaging centers cost the same?
NO! Some outpatient imaging centers are affiliated with hospitals so the cost of their exams can be the same as what you would pay at the hospital. SVDI is an independently owned and operated outpatient imaging center.
I have insurance. Can SVDI still cost me less than the hospital?
YES! The rate your insurer allows a hospital to collect for an exam can be significantly different than the rate your insurance sets with an outpatient imaging center like SVDI for the same exam. Since high deductibles & coinsurances are becoming more common it is important you understand what your insurance company will cover & what is your responsibility.
For example if you have a 20% coinsurance :
Mri at a hospital:$5000.00 you are responsible for $1000.00
Same MRI at SVDI:$500.00 you are responsible for $100.00
You would SAVE $900!!! For the same study
If you have a high deductible with your insurance you will be responsible for a significant amount more if you go to a hospital, your savings can be 10X more at SVDI.
What if I don't have insurance?
If you don’t have insurance SVDI can cost you significantly less than the hospital. SVDI has unbeatable self pay rates
