One of the confusing aspects of billing for a facility-based radiologist, is that if you have had
radiology services at a facility, you will receive two bills -- one from the radiologist (Virginia Radiology Associates, P.C.), and one from the facility. But, you are not paying for the same thing twice. Each radiology exam consists of TWO parts:

  • 1) The facility provides the technologists, equipment, and the supplies involved
  • 2) A specially trained physician, a radiologist, directs and supervises the examination and interprets the results.

If you have had some types of examinations, you will have met the radiologist. But, even if you have not met him or her in person, the radiologist will have studied your examination and sent a written report to your physician. This report is also kept in your medical record at the facility. The facility includes their portion of the radiology exam in the their bill. Since the radiologist is not an employee of the facility, we bill our portion of the radiology services separately.

As a courtesy to you, we will bill your health plan(s) directly for services provided. Virginia Radiology Associates strives to comply with all billing regulations and requirements. If you have any concern regarding your bill, please CONTACT US directly and we will be glad to review your concern. Since we are facility-based, we rely on the information that you provide to each facility at the time services are rendered. If you have insurance and receive a statement from us for claims that have not been billed to your insurance, CONTACT US promptly with your insurance information, and we will be happy to submit your claim to your insurance for you.

We also participate with all of the major managed care plans in our service areas. Please refer to our Insurance Participation List to see if your plan is listed.  Please note that this list represents the plans that Virginia Radiology Associates, P.C. participates with. It is not indicative of the participation list of any of our facilities. You should reference your health plan’s participation list or contact the facility directly to see if they participate in your plan.

While our facilities make every effort to know the referral and pre-authorization requirements of the insurance plans that they are contracted with, it is our recommendation that you contact your insurance plan when trying to confirm your plan requirements. Please check your insurance identification card for the telephone number to call. Many health plans even require some outpatient radiology procedures to be pre-authorized, such as MRIs and CTs.

We want to hear from you if you have any questions about your bill or insurance claim
status. You can make your inquiry by telephone, FAX, or e-mail.

You can reach us by phone at 703-361-3030 or at 1-800-344-3703, from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. You may FAX us at any time at 703-361-2687. You may also e-mail us any time at billing@virginiaradiology.com.
