Have you ever wondered if you’re getting the most value for your dollar from your orthopedic group or imaging center?
Though the Abilene Bone & Joint team is recognized for their high-trained surgeons and staff, their value is equally remarkable.
An ankle sprain is painful enough…Consider the average out of pocket cost of an ER visit for an orthopedic problem is over $2,000 compared to $250 at Abilene Bone & Joint Prompt Clinic.
The savings for an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is not worth the pain in the neck at an imaging center or hospital. If you haven’t met your deductible you could be paying as much as $457 at an imaging center or $992 for an MRI at a Hospital compared to $158 at ABJ. We also offer the lowest cash pay price in town for an MRI at $400. And, in some cases Abilene Bone & Joint can get your MRI done the same day.
When it comes to having surgery, where you have your surgery matters! In a recent review of patient EOB (explanation of benefits), we found that the surgeon fee for a meniscus repair performed at Texas Midwest Surgery Center cost $2962 compared to $5,000 when the surgery was performed at a hospital.
Physician Assistants/Nurse Practitioners vs Orthopedic Surgeons: Did you know it is more cost-efficient to see a PA/NP in the office? If your insurance does not require you pay a co-pay you can save 15% by seeing a midlevel. If you want to pay cash, you can save 50%!
Many times, when it comes to your healthcare, not all facilities/providers are created equal when assuring you’re getting the most for your money.
