When my doctor sent me to have an MRI, my major concern was whether it would be covered by my insurance or not. Not all places take my insurance, and I could not afford to pay for such a procedure out of my own pocket. While my doctor did provide me with a list of different places I could go, this did not tell me whether they would take my insurance. That left me to my own devices in order to make sure that I was fully covered in the procedure. Simply searching for radiology in Queens brought up a huge list of places that I would be able to go here locally. I was able to look at their respective websites in order to see what sort of insurance they take.
Most places will have a list of insurance companies and plans that they accept, and so it was really just a matter of looking through all of the different lists so that I could find a place that would accept my insurance. Obviously, getting covered for this procedure was my number one priority, but I also wanted to make sure that the place I went to knew what they were doing. This was not anything invasive at all, so I would have bet that nearly any place I picked would be fully qualified to handle such a thing, but it is always important to be completely sure. Basically, when it comes to your health, it is always better to be safe rather than sorry.
Through my research, I found a place right by my home that would take my insurance. I had the MRI done, and everything is looking good at this point. It really helped that this was covered by my insurance.
