Low Cost (Affordable) MRI scans
First and foremost, we have a genuine desire to keep our health care services affordable for everyone. Because of this desire, we’ve built our business model centered on low fixed costs (low overhead). We have also developed business systems and processes that allow us to provide affordable MRI services to our patients. No waiting! If you’re having to wait in line more than 1 week to get in, you’re waiting too long! Tell your doctor you do not want to wait.
“Now wait a minute, the average cost of an MRI is $1900 and you’re only charging $600? That’s like opening up a gas station and charging only $1.00 per gallon when all the other stations are charging $3.00. I’m very concerned my gas will be watered down at $1.00 per gallon. Sounds too good to be true . . . should I be concerned?”
Making MRI Affordable
Northwest MRI IS a very progressive Medical Imaging resource for the west coast, providing affordable MRI scans at a flat rate. There are many imaging centers on the east coast that are providing MRI exams for similar pricing and this model is progressively moving out west. The new health care paradigm is for the patient (you), to be far more in control of the cost and payment of your own health care. Albeit, the initial cost and operation of a suitable MRI system is not small, providing more affordable scans to patients is very doable and economically sound. When you use Northwest MRI you are a head of the game.
Simply put, we can afford to charge individuals less than a hospital or large imaging center because we pay less for office space, utilities, and other business related expenses. We have direct relationships with referring physicians, chiropractors, and other strategic partners, so we don’t spend a lot on marketing either.
We love being able to pass these savings on to our patients. One thing we haven’t compromised is our values or dedication to providing a fast, friendly, and professional service. Whether you utilize your health insurance coverage or are just paying for your services out-of-pocket, everyone wins.
