Yes I could look it up on the internet, and I have, I just want to know of personal experiences (expenses?) on this site.

Thank you for your time.

$250-ish

Lots of variables involved.  Are you doing with and without contrast? How large of an area?  (The whole spine usually takes three runs.)

Are you paying cash?  Tell them ahead of time and see what kind of deal they'll do.  Don't be hesitant to shop around!

Just had one done in November. With and without contrast.
Brain $2500

Almost five hundred out of pocket for me in January.  Open MRI, if that makes a difference.  Left knee.

If insured, which I am, was that in network or out of network?  I have a feeling I am in another battle with my insurance company whether it is or not.  Out of network costs seem to hover around $2,500.  So far I have won all the insurance battles.

I'll be having a Brain with and without contrast on this upcoming Thursday so I'm sure to find out.  Have BC/BS and $1200 deduct they had to call for approval so hopefully my part wont be so bad........  I'm more concerned as to why I'm getting it than how much at this point.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:16:09 PM EDT
Oh shit, I left off a zero


Sorry, I meant to post $2500-ish.

Hope it all turns out well! Went through it last fall myself. Took them 2 f-ing weeks to release the results. Not typical...hopefully yours will be much faster. Relax and it will go fine.

$900 for shoulder by in-house MRI.
$1,500 at outside facility. The orthopedic office had their own MRI machine.
I've had four, one for knee, two for shoulder, most recent one was arthrogram for hip, i.e. injected dye plus MRI.

The siemens units I've seen run about $400,000 but that doesn't include any permitting or site prep.

Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:37:03 PM EDT
Depends on what kind.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:38:51 PM EDT
The one I had in 2006 for a kidney stone (with no insurance) ended up being $4000.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:40:09 PM EDT
Just got a bill from my daughters it was over 2k.

Cant remember the website but it will allow you to search all local mri places and give you the best time to come when it would be cheapest because they arent using the machines.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:40:50 PM EDT
I prepaid out of pocket 1200 bucks with no insurance then I got a bill 3 months later for another $3600...  
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:40:59 PM EDT
Mine generally run around 2750 for the lower abdomen and chest. I get them 1-2 times a year.

4277.20, insurance allowed 1,176.22. My out of pocket was 644.60. This is a bill from Cone Health in Greensboro,NC. That was with and without contrast and was done 12/23/2016.

My copay was about a 1k.
Total was about 9k.

Way to damn much.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:45:41 PM EDT
$500 last time I had one, for my neck.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:46:09 PM EDT
I've had 9 CT scans in the last year.  All at the same in-network hospital.  They have billed my insurance from $700-7100 for each and none have been the same price

120 JD last November.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:48:57 PM EDT
It depends.

My wife had a brain MRI. $400 with her insurance.

The next year, our insurance had changed a bit. Higher cost, double the deductible from $1500 to $3000 per person.
Then she had another MRI. Brain and neck. Out of pocket cost was $60.


Now we're on my insurance. A lot lower copay. A bit lower cost. And $500 deductible.
It would probably cost $250-$350 out of pocket.

Find the price first. It will likely be cheaper for you to take a vacation to japan and get on there.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:51:47 PM EDT
My copay was about $650, no idea how much the whole thing cost.

The cash places were something like 800 to 1000 if I remember right.
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:53:17 PM EDT
Zip. Nada. Zero.

Every time a MRI was suggested, I simply told them I did not have insurance, would be paying out-of-pocket,
if I could afford it.

Suddenly the MRI became unnecessary.
We can get by with x-ray.

And local hospital offers a 60% discount for cash customers / no insurance.

60%.

Hows that Obama care working out now.

Don't need to know about your copay, what did they bill your ins. co. or medicare/medicaid.
...duh...
Link Posted: 4/16/2017 9:59:32 PM EDT
I had a CT for my sinus. I did not meet my deductible this year yet so it was about $300. I will meet my deductible soon
when he repairs what is broke.<---- is what he will be working on. <------ is what I will look like when finish.

Wake up people, anything over $350 cash out of pocket and your're getting fucked. I hear the stories about their copay is higher than if they pay out of pocket.

Imagine that. Medical prices are a joke. Co workers daughter was in the hospital, he spent the night on the couch in her room. They charged him 500$ for
doing so.
