Cost Estimates Explained

Southern Arizona Radiology Associates provides an estimated cost that will be due when you receive your physician ordered exam.

  • Southern Arizona Radiology Associates checks your insurance benefits, prior to services being rendered, to provide an estimated cost at the time of service.
    • Remaining deductible
    • Patient coinsurance
    • Copayments (if applicable)
    • Out-Of-Packet Maximum remaining
  • This information comes directly from your insurance company.

Based on the exam ordered by your physician, your insurance company reports the amount of coverage they will provide using;

The insurance company reflects the current balances remaining on the above items. This does not include any pending claims that have not been processed. Please note it takes 6-8 weeks for most claims to be processed by your insurance and to update deductible, coinsurance, and out-of-pocket maximum balances.

This is why time of service costs are only an estimate and are subject to change once your insurance processes your claim.
