Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the best methods for detecting soft tissue injury and other abnormalities and has a wide range of uses. However, MRI can carry a large financial burden with the average nationwide cost of $2611. For many Utahns, insurance deductibles are high, which means much of the cost of initial assessment for pain or injury comes out of pocket. Initial doctor visits, X-rays and follow up appointments add to the cost and frustration with the health care system.
Kevin Taylor, MD, a Utah-native and board-certified radiologist decided this process was not beneficial to patients or medical professionals and he did something about it.
TaylorMED MRI in Lindon offers an MRI for a flat rate cash price of $399 and eliminates the need for a doctor’s order. This is an all inclusive price and includes the radiology report. This model allows patients to get their imaging done so that they can take their results to their first appointment with their medical professional and get right to making a plan for recovery.
“Our purpose is not for people to avoid seeing a licensed physician, we just want to get to a diagnosis faster and at a lower out-of-pocket expense,” Dr. Taylor said.
Money isn’t the only thing you save by choosing TaylorMED MRI. In contrast to some imaging centers and hospitals, convenient same-day and next day appointments are available saving valuable time. Low cost doesn’t equal poor quality either. TaylorMED MRI offers imaging on a 1.5T MRI machine which is the gold standard for MRI imaging, similar to what you find in hospitals and other imaging centers.
It’s an especially appealing option when you consider the crowded hospital system and the current COVID 19 pandemic. Special precautions have been taken to ensure a safe environment. The response has been impressive. Patients have driven from all the surrounding states and even flown in from the east coast and even Alaska to get their imaging done at TaylorMED MRI.
