GREEN IMAGING
Texas-based Green Imaging PLC is providing direct-care radiology via a growing national network of providers and physicians to give patient quality scans at fair prices.
 
The Green Imaging model helps patients make the most informed decisions about MRIs, CTs, and other imaging procedures. Unlike many other imaging facilities the cash-pay price they provide is the “all in” price. There are no other charges or fees, e.g. for interpreting the scans. Patients pay for procedures up- front, with no surprise bills after the fact.

Green Imaging was founded in Texas but has now expanded to provide services in many parts of the country.

In Texas their model is to read images themselves (without incurring the cost to read them on site), thus assuring consistency and quantity. Nationally, they have a different model to assure the same type of quality. They preferentially contact with radiologist-owned imaging centers that are like-minded, which enables them to sustain the kind of relationships they’re used to. They know these radiologists take pride in their work and understand quality. The benefits are many: fewer middle men involved; the centers are glad to have the business and make use of under-utilized equipment, and help sustain their own centers.

Learn  more about how Green Imaging works and how they are able to provide low-priced, sustainable high quality imaging services by reading this article that appeared in the most recent issue of Free Market Healthcare Solutions , which is published by the Free Market Medical Association.

THE OKLAHOMA SURGERY CENTER  
Providers like the Oklahoma Surgery Center (note: these types of providers are proliferating throughout the United States) provide transparent, bundled cash-based prices offering the highest quality at the lowest cost. They provide price lists that you can shop and compare at www.surgerycenterOK.com.

Here’s a chart that shows the savings cash-pay patients can incur by using services provided by the Oklahoma Surgery Center (note: these data are provided by the Oklahoma Surgery Center):
Services at providers like Green Imaging (see above article) and the Oklahoma Surgical Center are multiplying and are offering similar savings for cash-paying patients who are members of plans like Health Excellence Plus

Sedera, the medical cost sharing provider, can provide medical tourism services to members who use these services when they can show significant savings over using local providers. Members using these types of services save money for themselves and also save money for the community as a whole, thus enabling the plan to be offered with lower monthly contributions than premiums paid for plans funded through traditional health insurance.
