Insurance Plans & Resources

Wake Radiology 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 (including UnitedHealthcare) do have out-of-network benefits that cover Wake Radiology 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 Wake Radiology’s prompt-pay discount. This allows patients to pay at the time-of-service and receive reimbursement once their insurance carrier pays the claim.

Recent News

  • Wake Radiology now accepts TRICARE military coverage for all clinical services. Previously, Wake Radiology accepted TRICARE for only breast-related imaging. As of February 1, 2012, we accept and file TRICARE plans – both primary and secondary – for all radiology services.
  • Wake Radiology accepts workers’ compensation cases and files claims to all carriers. We accept workers’ compensation cases, file claims to all carriers and honor the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) fee schedule for workers’ compensation. Although we do not participate with workers’ compensation brokering/3rd party networks (e.g., OneCall Medical, Corvel and DiaTri), most workers’ compensation insurance carriers authorize imaging services when Wake Radiology is a referring provider’s preference. Of note, we interact with workers’ compensation carriers to confirm NCIC rates and obtain authorization for service.
