How Much Will my MRI Cost?

Smart Choice MRI is the first MRI Provider in the nation to adopt a transparent pricing model. We charge a single, global flat rate of $600 for any MRI scan. This price includes both the cost of scan and the cost to have the expert radiologists at Cleveland Clinic read your scan. Even better, this global flat rate is available to you regardless of whether you're paying out of pocket or your insurance company is picking up the bill. Knowing the cost of your service - both to you and your insurance provider - helps make you an informed health care consumer which can ultimately lead to lower insurance rates for everyone. 

Did you know that comparable MRI Exams performed at hospitals in the area using the exact same technology cost an average of $2,948? 

That's five times more expensive than the Smart Choice rate of $600 for the exact same scan. Some hospitals also charge a separate fee to read your scan, on top of the already high average rate for the service. You wouldn't purchase a car at a dealership charging three times more than another dealership for the exact same car. It's no different with health care - Smart Choice MRI is the right choice for the informed consumer looking for an expert MRI Exam at a reasonable price. 

As health care costs continue to rise and more companies move to high deductible insurance plans, it's more important than ever to understand what you're paying for services up front. That's why Smart Choice MRI has an Insurance Specialist on staff, dedicating to helping you estimate exactly what you'll need to pay at the time of service. If you have questions regarding the cost of a scan or what portion of the costs your insurance company will cover, we're just a quick phone call away. Call us at 414-431-0309 and one of our dedicated health care professionals will be happy to answer your questions.

Smart Choice MRI is a top tier provider for most insurance companies and workman's compensation providers. If you have questions about which health insurances we accept, click here for additional information.
