Commonly Asked Billing Questions
1. Who is Bay Imaging Consultants?
We are a private radiology group that reads diagnostic exams for various hospitals and outpatient imaging centers across the Eastern and Northern Bay area. Hospitals and outpatient centers want the highest-level understanding of your scan. So, the hospital or outpatient imaging center you visited has trusted our 90+ board-certified and sub-specialized radiologists to interpret your scan and create a comprehensive report for your physician. Ultimately, we’re involved so we can provide you with reliable results that you can count on. It’s nice to meet you!
2. Why did I receive a bill from Bay Imaging Consultants?
The hospital or outpatient imaging center you have visited outsources the reading of their imaging scans to our radiologists at Bay Imaging Consultants, also known as a "professional reading fee". As a patient, you will receive a bill from your hospital/imaging center for the scanning fee which covers the cost of the scanner or machine used to perform your scan. Then you will receive a bill from our team at BICRAD to "read" your exam and create the report that is sent to your physician. When you filled out your paperwork, it states that you're responsible for any out-of-pocket costs that are associated with the professional reading fee of our radiologists.
3. I already paid my bill in full, so why am I receiving another bill from Bay Imaging Consultants?
It’s important to highlight that you will receive two separate bills - one from your hospital/imaging center and another one from our team at Bay Imaging Consultants. Our bill is to cover the cost of our radiologist’s interpretation and report of your scan.
5. What will my bill look like?
This is an example of a bill you will receive for imaging studies performed in a hospital or out-patient imaging facility where Bay Imaging Consultants is the Radiology group. This is for the professional fee for the Radiologist to read your exam and give feedback to your physician. You may receive another bill from the hospital or facility itself, for the technical fee, or the person who performed your exam.
