Insurance Plans & Resources

WakeRad UNC REX is a contracted, in-network provider for most major managed care insurance plans. Today, the majority of insurance plans pass a portion of their cost of care to patients, in the form of a deductible and/or co-insurance.

For patients whose plans are not within our managed care network, we can still provide imaging services as well as file claims on their behalf. It’s important to note that most of these insurance plans do have out-of-network benefits that cover WakeRad UNC REX imaging fees. However, these out-of-network services may result in a higher cost share to the patient.

We recommend patients talk with their insurance carrier about our network status and their anticipated cost of care with us. Patients may be able to reduce their net out-of-pocket cost by using WakeRad REX’s prompt-pay discount. This allows patients to pay at the time-of-service and receive reimbursement once their insurance carrier pays the claim.
