Billing and Insurance
You will receive two two separate invoices per exam: a technical fee from Providence Imaging Center, and a professional fee from Alaska Radiology Associates. Patients who undergo a breast procedure in the Providence Breast Procedure Center may also receive an additional facility bill.
Providence supports health care pricing transparency and tools that help patients and all consumers evaluate what care is best for them and any related financial costs. For our patients, we offer financial counseling for those experiencing hardship during any point throughout their care.
