Billing Information

It is important for patients to take the following steps before their appointment:

  1. Patients should find out if their policy or plan requires pre-authorization. Insurance companies may call this pre-authorization, pre-certification, prior notification, pre-notification, or RQI. If so, the patient should contact the insurance company and find out what information is needed to obtain one. The phone number is usually found on the back of the insurance card.
  2. Patients should give Advanced Imaging Center complete insurance information, including insurance card, name and address of the insurance plan, claims payer, the ID and group numbers, and the name of the policy holder or subscriber. Worker's compensation, automobile, or personal injury cases may also require pre-authorization and, if applicable, the name and address of the patient's attorney.

Each exam will result in two bills:

  1. Advanced Imaging Center for the technical component (the actual scan itself).
  2. Advanced Radiology, S.C. for the interpretation of the exam by a radiologist (reading fee).
Advanced Radiology, S.C. handles the billing for both services, and can be reached for billing questions at (309) 762-1072. If a patient does not have medical insurance and/or is concerned about paying for the procedure, they should contact the billing office. Ultimately, the patient is responsible for payment of the accounts, including any deductible and/or balance not covered by their insurance plan.
