Why did I receive a separate bill from a radiologist when I never saw a radiologist during my healthcare visit?
Radiologist often serve as an integral member of your healthcare team by interpreting the images scanned during your visit “behind the scenes.” These diagnostic radiology services include the physician’s review of images for anomalies or signs of illness and collaboration with appropriate members of patient care team.
If your services were provided at a hospital covered by CRS, then you will receive separate bills from the facility and the physician(s) providing treatment. If your imaging services were provided at certain outpatient physician practices that are covered by CRS, then you will receive one global bill for all services provided.
