The DIS Competitive Advantage

More and more patients face high deductible health insurance plans. Half of all workers now have health insurance with a deductible of at least $1,000 for an individual, up from 22 percent in 2009, according to data from the Kaiser Family Foundation. About 41 percent say they can’t pay a $400 emergency expense without borrowing or selling something, according to the Federal Reserve.

For your patients with insurance deductibles, DIS provides high-quality screening and diagnostic imaging often at much less overall cost than area hospitals and their imaging affiliates. Lower list prices translate into lower deductible charges that are the responsibility of the patient to pay.

High quality. Lower cost.

You get the results you need. People save money.

For the same exam at the same — if not better — quality, why would you want patients who face financial obligations for medical imaging to potentially pay more at the hospital?

Patient Satisfaction

And what do people who are referred to DIS think of our service? Recent comments include:

  • “I received excellent customer service from Ashley. If I had to rate her from 1 to 10, she would be a 12+.”
  • “Thank you for making tests affordable for those with high insurance deductibles. You guys are the best.”
