Covenant Health recently announced that they will be offering a simple, cash based price for advanced imaging at their Fort Sanders West Diagnostic Center.  This was my go to facility while in insurance based medicine.  They’ve always been easy to work with and the reports have been good.  So I’m very happy that another imaging center, let alone a hospital affiliated center, has entered the market with clear, cash pricing on advanced imaging.  However, these prices may not be the lowest a patient can get in town and patients with government regulated insurance like Medicare, Tricare, and Tenncare don’t qualify for these discounts.

Part of my job as your physician is to help you sort out the best overall choice for your treatment and testing.  Sometimes the price point is the biggest driver and sometimes the quality is.  However, both always need to be considered.  This is why we offer healthcare without hassles, built for you.

If you are interested in finding out more about the discounts available to DPC members around town and how to best navigate the healthcare landscape, then I invite you to become a member of our program and schedule your first appointment.  We look forward to working with you.
