Question I dont wanna be exposed...

Hey, guys i just have a question... How much does a M.R.I cost?
Because i have been having headaches/migraines everyday for like a few years now and i went to the doctor yesterday they said "Go to the optometrist and see if its your eyes thats the problem, if not come back, and we can write a referal to get an MRI"

So how much would it cost???

Australia doesn't have free healthcare? I swear every time I learn something about that country I like it less and less.

Very very expensive, especially without insurance. When I got a CAT Scan done it was roughly $10,000. After insurance, it was about $2,000. I'd imagine an MRI is just as expensive, if not more expensive.

Go to an MRI facility at night and give yourself one. Way cheaper then paying out the ass for a doctor to tell you you're about to go insane and die in a month.

Mine cost about $5000 (U.S.) it was a single scan no contrast needed.

Insurance took care a 80% of it. I don't know what kind of healthcare system you have in Oz.

Do you have insurance? Last summer, I spent two weeks in the hospital. Got a CT scan, and MRI, bone marrow biopsy, EKG, and like 80 blood tests. Never even got a bill. If not, uhhh, good luck?

Would rather die if I had to pay that much.
Luckily I'm insured with some crappy thing.

That isn't how things work in this country... Go to the doctor. Your financials will be fine.

You may need to pay first but medicare will rebate most if not all of it.
Australia's healthcare is amongst the best in the world (unless you need something done quickly)
Medicare basically pays for all procedures and tests as well as subsidising medicine.

I had an MRI a couple months ago. I think I had a $20 copay.

And I thought American healthcare was bad...
