You are primarily and ultimately responsible for the bill for services you receive at Diagnostic Imaging Services. As a courtesy to you, our patient financial services department bills your primary insurance carrier. It is your responsibility to provide us with accurate and current information.
On the day of your visit to DIS, please bring the following with you:
- Photo identification
- Insurance card
- Prescription from your doctor’s office with diagnosis
- Form of payment for copayment or coinsurance
You will receive one bill from DIS, which includes the facility fee (or technical fee), as well as the professional fee, which covers the cost of a radiologist reading your study and interpreting the results.
