Wake Radiology Managed Care and Insurance Information
Wake Radiology is a contracted, in-network provider for most major managed care insurance plans. For patients whose plans are not within our managed care network, we file claims on their behalf. For questions related to insurance, please contact our business office.
- Wake Radiology now accepts TRICARE military coverage for all clinical services. Previously, Wake Radiology accepted TRICARE for only breast-related imaging. As of February 1, 2012, we accept and file TRICARE plans – both primary and secondary – for all radiology services.
- Wake Radiology accepts workers’ compensation cases and files claims to all carriers. We accept workers’ compensation cases, file claims to all carriers and honor the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC) fee schedule for workers’ compensation. Although we do not participate with workers’ compensation brokering/3rd party networks (e.g., OneCall Medical, Corvel and DiaTri), most workers’ compensation insurance carriers authorize imaging services when Wake Radiology is a referring provider’s preference. Of note, we interact with workers’ compensation carriers to confirm NCIC rates and obtain authorization for service.
- Financial assistance. Wake Radiology recognizes that some patients do not have insurance and/or require financial assistance. We offer payment plans to ease their cash flow burden or prompt payment discounts to lower their out-of-pocket costs.

Self-Insured Employers If you are insured as a result of your or your spouse’s employer, your rights under your health plan may be governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) under the U.S. Department of Labor. If so, state law will not generally apply to your group health plan. Instead you will need to contact the U.S. Department of Labor for consumer information and assistance. The law requires that your plan sponsor provide you with a “summary plan description”. The employer may also be able to overturn a decision of the plan administrator, especially with regard to a medical necessity determination.

Health Care Reform The passage of health insurance reform legislation represents a historic victory for the American people – a victory over the special interests that have fought for decades to prevent families and businesses from having control over their health care or the health care of their workers.
