Nationwide Access To Affordable Imaging
Radiology Assist is a social program committed to making healthcare affordable and transparent. Radiology Assist provides affordable MRI, CT Scan, Ultrasound, PET and X-ray imaging to the uninsured community.
Diagnostic Imaging is an integral part of diagnosing and treating most medical conditions. Often patients find themselves in a situation where they urgently need imaging but are unable to get a clear idea of the cost of the services they are about to receive. This is why we created, Radiology Assist. A program through which, patients can get their imaging at an affordable, known cost quickly.
When diagnosed with a medical condition, diagnostic imaging is usually the first step in understanding the problem. Being uninsured at the same time puts the patient in an almost impossible situation.
1) The patients sense of reasoning is clouded by the news of the illness. 2) The discomfort from the illness creates a sense of urgency and a desperation to treat the problem.
Patients in this situation are not in a frame of mind to price shop or understand the intricacies of medical coding and often go with the first referral provided without fully understanding the costs associated. They later face high costs at the back end.
Our organization was founded as a trusted resource for the uninsured to assist them in this time of need. The program aims to make scheduling imaging quick, easy and very affordable with no surprises.
The organization started of as ColonoscopyAssist, a colon cancer screening program that assisted uninsured individuals to receive affordable colonoscopies. For many years, the program worked with imaging centers to offer affordable diagnostic imaging to patients that needed follow up MRI and CT scans after their colonoscopy. In 2017, the offering was formalized under RadiologyAssist and opened up to the public.
Our mission statement is simple
– Make diagnostic imaging accessible to the uninsured. – Help patients receive quality healthcare despite not having insurance
