We’ve got nothing to hide: Shields allows you to calculate your price and understand your savings.
We want you to be completely prepared for your MRI—and that includes knowing what you will be charged. You will likely receive one “global” bill from Shields that includes the technical cost of the scan and the radiologist reading charge. At some locations, the radiologist charge may be billed separately. The price will be just about the same, but one bill will be from Shields for the technical scan and one will be from the local radiologist for the reading.
You should feel great about your choice to have an MRI at Shields, and we encourage you to compare our value to other providers. There are some questions you should ask all providers as you look around for an MRI, and Shields has created a comparison chart for you.
Looking for an out-of-pocket price estimate?
1. Ask your doctor’s office for your procedure’s ordering code, also known as a CPT code, or provide the scan type, including whether or not you need contrast (e.g., elbow MRI with contrast).
2. Have your insurance card ready.
3. Give us a call at 877-712-3075 or email at MRIprice@shields.com. Using the CPT code and your insurance type, we’ll give you your out-of-pocket estimate.
