Know Your Options
Did you know that as a patient, you can choose where your doctor refers you for future treatment? Here at Sand Lake Imaging, we want you to know your options because many patients are unaware of this choice. Hospital systems are corporations looking to keep patients within their business. Doctor’s referrals are considered a vital source of revenue and in some cases, they are pressured to refer internally, which may not be your best fit. This is why it is vital that you understand your options. One option available to all patients is the option to be referred to an Independent facility, as they offer many benefits.
A Fair Price
One of the benefits that independent facilities offer is that they often cost much less than hospitals. Independent facilities have lower costs due to fewer administrative costs that hospitals must cover, so these charges tend to roll over to the patient’s bill. Hospitals also have the power to negotiate with insurance companies, attaining higher rates. Combined, these two added costs can nearly double the price of a procedure at a hospital. By choosing an independent facility, your insurance company will pay less, meaning lower premiums for you.
At Your Convenience
Independent facilities offer hours that cater to your life. Here at Sand Lake Imaging, we offer evening and Saturday appointments to make scheduling easier than ever. Our goal is to make your experience as worry-free as possible not only with schedules but also upon arrival. We have easy suburban commutes and no confusing parking ramps. Instead, you only have a quick walk from your parking space.
Specialization Means Personal Care
Independent facilities offer discipline-specific care, which means their physicians are experts in this area of medicine.
