Our Policy

Healthcare billing is complex. Co-pays, high deductibles, co-insurance, and ever-changing plan benefits can be confusing and frustrating. In order to make your billing experience as easy as possible, we will run your eligibility verification prior to your visit at our office using the insurance company we have on file for you. We will determine your level of coverage and ask for an estimated portion of the payment at the time of your service. For your convenience, we will call you the day prior to your exam to notify you of the estimated out-of-pocket expense. Following your appointment, we will submit a claim to your insurance company, and bill you for any remaining amount due for our services. If you are without insurance, please call our offices to ask for our cash prices.


What you need to know about your insurance/benefits prior to your visit at Pueblo Radiology:

Our scheduling staff will collect your insurance information when scheduling your appointment.

Our benefits coordinators will run your insurance eligibility 48 hours prior to your appointment. We will calculate your out of pocket payment which will be collected at the time of service. The payment Pueblo Radiology will collect is the amount your insurance says is your responsibility. The amount collected will include deductibles, co-payment, and co-insurance.

A member of our patient services staff will confirm your appointment 24 hours in advance. At this time, if there is a payment due you will be notified.

To find out whether your insurance is contracted with us, please call your insurance company and use California Managed Imaging Medical’s Tax ID #30-0449168

For patients of Santa Barbara Women’s Imaging Center, please refer to their website, as they have separately contracted insurances.
