"When the WCA Group Health Trust made their decision to work with Smart Choice MRI, we conducted extensive research and took several key criteria into consideration, including quality of care. Smart Choice MRI is accredited by the American College of Radiology and has garnered an 'A' rating from American Imaging Management (AIM), an independent evaluator of clinical imaging," said Michael Lamont, WCA Group Health Trust Chief Operating Officer. "In addition, they utilize the same board-certified, sub-specialized radiologists and MRI technology as the Cleveland Clinic, recently ranked among the country's top four hospitals by U.S. News and World Report."
He continued, "Our partnership with Smart Choice MRI has given WCA Group Health Trust members a high quality option and we are excited to see another location open to better serve more of the state."
In 2013, many of WCA Group Health Trust members had MRIs that experienced costs in excess of $5000. Smart Choice MRI offers quality MRI diagnostic services at an affordable price to our members. The cost for a Smart Choice MRI is $600 and our network discount can reduce that cost even further on most types of MRI's.
