The cost of MRI scan depends on a number of factors.

  1. What area of the body is being imaged.
  2. Will contrast be used?
  3. If contrast is used, will they do a MRI scan before and after the contrast?
  4. Most importantly, what is the price the individual provider charges?

It is important to keep in mind that the charges you see for a MRI scan may be for:

  • The technical component (performing the MRI scan)
  • The professional component (a physician interpreting the MRI scan)
  • The global component (both the technical and professional component together).

In the search above, the “Medicare price” will be higher for the global charge (both technical and professional fee) and lower when a provider is charging just the individual technical or professional component.  The price evaluation next to the price tag standardizes the cost to the market value so whether the charge is technical, professional or global, our evaluation analyzes and rates the price appropriately.
