- If you live in Harris County (Houston), you can apply for financial aid from the Harris County Hospital District at 713-566-6400 or hchdonline. The amount of aid you receive will depend on need, which you will describe in your application. Harris County medical facilities like LBJ Hospital are staffed by our UT experts, and the quality of imaging and image interpretations is at our high standards.
- At Memorial Hermann –Texas Medical Center, you can call 877-704-8700. They will ask you specifics about the test ordered (part of the body to be imaged, whether you will need a contrast agent during the imaging) which your doctor can give you. At this number, you can ask what the self-pay rates would be. If you are scheduled for a procedure and insurance coverage is absent or inadequate, you can discuss payment options and rates when the facility calls you about the appointment.
A final thought – there is a good possibility that in addition to the imaging, you will be needing treatment for your knee problem which may become part of your total which will reach the deductible anyway. Your best bet in this case is to arrange for a payment plan that you can handle.
