In March 2017, USA Today published a story that had health care spenders scratching their heads.
“The median price difference for MRIs in hospitals versus freestanding imaging centers in the United States often varies by thousands of dollars, underscoring the need for consumers to shop around given high out of pocket health costs, data out Tuesday show,” the story said.
These reporters are right. Shopping around has become the key to finding a truly affordable MRI scan. But that’s only half the equation. Not only do you need dependable, high-quality service at a fair price from your health care providers, you also need appointments that you can actually attend — and you need them sooner rather than later.
Forbes reports that the wait time for a doctor’s appointment in U.S. cities shot up by 30 percent between 2014 and 2017, with an average wait of 24 days as of March 2017. Quick, convenient scheduling is clearly hard to find in the current health care environment.
