We partner with you

Know the Costs® is a specialized radiology benefits manager for self-insured companies.

It’s not all up to you to look after your members’ best financial and clinical interests. With > 20 years of radiology experience, we had the in-house expertise to develop proprietary software based on 100% price transparency.

We know how to combine significant cost reduction with a nationwide panel of top-level radiologists¹ who interpret MRIs, CTs, and PET exams. Legacy networks can’t offer this unique combination of lower cost + high quality.

Know the Costs®  is a supplemental, targeted cost-reduction tool and not a replacement for a carrier’s imaging network.

¹most of whom have fellowship training in sub-specialties, e.g. neuroradiology, musculoskeletal, body imaging, etc.

  • Virtually everyone agrees that healthcare costs are excessive.
  • The difference is Know the Costs®  is actually doing something about it.
  • If you’re a self-insured employer, you have the ability to reduce your radiology expenses.
  • You’ve probably already implemented a pharmacy benefits manager (PBM).
  • Now it’s time to take the next cost reduction step by adding a radiology benefits manager (RBM) to your plan design.
  • Both your members and your company will benefit financially.
  • A better benefits package (at no cost to you) will lead to improved employee/member satisfaction and retention.
  • We can give you a good estimate of the total annual savings you can expect.
  • Then you tell us how you want the savings allocated between members and your company.
  • Plus, we handle everything. You aren’t taking on additional HR tasks e.g. open enrollment education, etc.
  • Know the Costs® can serve your members virtually anywhere in the US.
  • And, there’s no cost to your company.

Municipality Employee

Computer genius

My doctor scheduled me for an MRI at a hospital.  I knew it would be expensive but I didn’t realize I had a choice.  Then I got a text and email from Know the Costs® stating I could save almost $900 if I went to one of their places.  That was welcome news!  I called the number and Know the Costs® re-scheduled me.  I saved a lot of money and really learned something about hospital prices!

Private Company Employee

Computer genius

Our HR department told us they had a new program to help us save on medical costs but I really didn’t understand what they were talking about.  My daughter was supposed to have a CT scan at a hospital.  Sort of out of the blue, I got a text and maybe an email too that we could save money by going to a place run by Know the Costs®. I saved about $1,100!  Needless to say, my husband was happy about that!

Clinic Manager

Computer genius

We’ve even had X-ray patients who’ve saved over $1,000 instead of going to a local hospital! They were amazed (and very happy) when they realized how much they saved!
