How to Schedule
CT, MRI, mammography, PET, ultrasound and bone densitometry are performed by appointment only.
A scheduler in your physician's office will usually schedule your appointment with us; however, you may also schedule your own appointment as long as you have an order from your physician.
Appointments are scheduled by calling the central scheduling department at Genesis HealthCare System, which is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The phone number for scheduling is (740) 454-4242; toll-free 1-800-949-2720.
An appointment is not needed for general x-ray services.
Preparing for Your Test
Some imaging tests require you to follow special dietary instructions before you arrive. You may need to drink a special contrast liquid that enables certain body structures or organs to be seen on a scan. Your physician will give you information on how to prepare for your test and tell you where to pick up any special contrast if needed.
If you do not receive these instructions and are unsure whether you should take any special steps, please give us a call at (740) 454-4009; toll-free 1-866-241-3909.
Whenever possible, we will call you prior to your appointment and complete registration over the phone. This will enable us to do most of your paperwork before you come to the center and save you time when you arrive for your test.
Insurance and Billing
Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Compensation and most commercial insurance plans are accepted.
Self-pay patients are accepted with prior payment arrangements.
We work with your physician's office to obtain benefits information and certification from your insurance company as needed. We also take care of billing your insurance company on your behalf.
If you have a question about whether your insurance plan is accepted at the Genesis Imaging Center, please call us at (740) 586-6604.
We know you may be a little anxious, and we want your experience with us to be as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
If you have questions about how to prepare for your exam, or what to expect during or after your scan, please contact us.
We are also glad to answer any general questions you have about the imaging studies we offer and to arrange a visit to the center before your exam so you can see the equipment and meet our staff.
