For X-rays, the best rate HelpWithMedicalCosts.com can find is at Advantage Diagnostics in Beachwood. For $75, a patient can have any of the common X-rays listed below, and all fees include professional readings.
A patient can simply declare himself or herself as “Self Pay” and not present any insurance information. Self-pay patients receive a receipt for the amount paid — and that can be submitted to an insurance company for reimbursement or applied toward a deductible.
Payment is due at the time of service, and major credit cards are accepted. A spokeswoman for Advantage Diagnostics said the company saves money by not billing insurance and passes that savings on to patients. The Beachwood testing center is at 3733 Park East Drive, Suite 100; the phone number is 216-292-9998. Available X-rays are:
