Have High Deductibles Caught You by Surprise???

Posted: Wednesday, August 22

Deductible Shock..... 

Many of you are having 'sticker shock' when you visit your healthcare provider and discover that your insurance coverage is now subject to a $1000, $2000 or even higher deductible??  How did this happen??


  Unfortunately, most company's group insurance has changed to plans with these large deductibles in order to keep premium cost down. It's your employers only affordable option to maintain group heath insurance for its employees.


  These deductibles are leading to an unexpected financial burden for many people who weren't prepared to cover these expenses.  But what do you do when you need medical care and don't have the funds available to cover the deductible?


Diagnostic Systems of Georgia has developed a Budget Payment Plan to help our customers deal with this unexpected expense.


For example, your doctor orders an MRI on your knee?


Your Deductible                                   $2,000.00

Discounted Cost of the MRI                 $800.00

Your Day of Service Payment              $0

Your Budget Payment Plan                  $33.00/month 

 We file your insurance so that the charges are credited against your deductible. You make monthly payments of $33.00 via bank draft from your checking account.... It's that simple!


Most providers will demand payment up front or expect payment in full immediately after insurance is filed.  We arrange for payments up front so you are in control of your monthly payments, and we offer discounted rates when making these arrangements prior to your test being done.


The Budget Payment Plan offers several options that can be tailored to best fit your financial situation.  Our Financial Counselors will be happy to assist you in setting up your payments.
