AHI’s non-hospital outpatient pricing and single, all-inclusive bill will help you save money.

At AHI, our prices are up to 75% lower than what you would pay at a hospital or hospital-owned outpatient imaging center.

Here’s why: When your hospital charges you an exorbitant amount of money for an imaging test, you may not be paying for just your imaging. Hospital imaging departments may charge patients as much as five times more for imaging services. It is common practice for hospitals to use multiple-billing techniques, charging patients separately for imaging, pharmacy, medical supplies, laboratory and the radiologist’s report. At AHI, we offer the same or better leading-edge technology without the major bill.

You Have A Choice!

Choosing AHI for your imaging tests can help you and your doctor get the results you need without the bills of big hospitals. You will have access to our state-of-the-art equipment without having to go to the hospital and save money in the process.
You can use our Benefits Checker Tool to estimate the out-of-pocket cost for an imaging test. Don’t let the term “out-of-pocket” scare you. Even if you haven’t met your deductible and your insurance won’t cover the full amount of your imaging study, the price may still be lower than you expect, and we offer competitive self-pay rates, as well.
AHI offers a full spectrum of imaging services in more than 30 locations across the Southeast. Visit our website, call (855) 674-2464 or email to learn more about scheduling your imaging test.
