You're not imagining things if you feel that healthcare costs have shot up in the last few years.

In fact, medical costs have inflated even more than other sectors. According to Health System Tracker data from Peterson-KFF, medical care costs have increased 114.3% since 2000, while the costs of all goods and services have increased 80.8% since 2000.

And when you're dealing with an injury or chronic pain the typical process of visiting the doctor, then perhaps going to a specialist before getting an MRI can take weeks. One Utah clinic has found a way to bypass the headaches of waiting for a doctor's appointment and dealing with the hassle of insurance.

TaylorMED MRI offers scans starting at $399 — no insurance or doctor's order is necessary.

Why a low-cost cash alternative can be better than using insurance

Because many insurance plans require a doctor's order for an MRI, you can potentially spend hundreds even before getting the okay, depending on your plan and co-pay.

With insurance, many factors affect the cost of your MRI. Type of health insurance, in-network provider versus out-of-network provider, body area being scanned, and even the region you live in can all affect your final costs.

In many cases, it's advantageous to skip the insurance hassle and pay a flat fee. That's what you can expect at TaylorMED MRI, where the cost for each type of imaging is clearly listed with most at $399.

There are no hidden costs involved, and since you don't have to make multiple specialist visits before finally getting an order for your MRI, it could save you hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars in the long run.
