Tellica Imaging performs 5,000th exam
In only eight months from opening its doors, Tellica Imaging has now performed more than 5,000 exams. With flat-rate pricing, same day scheduling, new CT/MRI equipment, and access to 60 fellowship-trained radiologists, Tellica offers patients a great value in outpatient radiology services.
Tellica uses a transparent price model for patient care which is especially helpful for those wanting to pay out-of-pocket.
“I needed an MRI for my back,” says Debbie, a recent Tellica patient. “Our medical insurance provider covers many Intermountain providers and hospitals but only through a couple of imaging centers. We’re on a high-deductible plan and hadn’t yet met our limit. With Tellica’s great cash price for an MRI, the out-of-pocket cost—we used our HSA—was the same as we would have paid through our insurance.”
Debbie used Tellica’s Ogden office and says she was very pleased with the experience.
“I was able to schedule an appointment quickly,” she says. “The facility was new, bright, and well designed. The technology was excellent and high quality. The Tellica team members—from the imaging professional to the receptionist—were friendly, courteous, helpful, and answered all my questions. They did everything I could want to make my involvement positive.”
“I’m so grateful that this high-quality, affordable option was available to me,” Debbie says. “I didn’t know anything about the imaging centers my insurance wanted to send me to, but I trusted Intermountain and knew I could count on Tellica. I wasn’t disappointed.”
Tellica currently has sites operating in Ogden, West Valley, and Orem. Construction is underway to open three new sites by the end of 2022, with plans to expand to more locations in 2023.
