MoneyDid you know that healthcare expenses are the number one reason for bankruptcy in America? It’s important to be a smart healthcare consumer to receive the highest-quality care without breaking the bank. Let’s face it, we do more homework when buying an appliance or a car than we do when choosing our healthcare services. It’s time we all become educated on our options and the cost of the care we receive.

* Please note that the Ballad Health charge does not include the professional component of the interpretation charge. This will be billed separately by their radiology sub-contract. HMG chooses to bill “global” which is all-inclusive (payor & patient receives only ONE statement).
