Once you've learned how to find an imaging center with Amino, you might wonder which search options are best for you.
Here's an overview of how imaging search works on Amino.
Amino shows you Smart Matches first
Smart Match helps you easily identify in-network, cost-effective imaging facilities for your needs.
Imaging facilities with the Smart Match label satisfy all of the following criteria:
- Are in-network for your plan
- Are cost-effective imaging facilities ($ – $$ rating)
(Wondering how we calculate an imaging facility's cost-effectiveness? Learn more about how we determine a facility's cost rating.)
You can also sort by cost
Using the sort menu on your search results, you can switch to sorting your results by cost. When you sort by cost, the facilities with the lowest Facility Cost Rating appear first.
The Facility Cost Rating measures a facility’s expensiveness relative to the national average cost based on fee-for-service procedures. The Facility Cost Rating is an easy to understand, symbolic system of dollar signs ranging from one dollar sign denoting “inexpensive” to four dollar signs denoting “expensive.” This rating appears on facilities whenever we have cost data available.
You can also sort by distance
When convenience is essential, you may just need to know which facility is closest. To sort your results by distance, select Distance from the sort menu and add your address using the edit icon. The facilities closest to your address will appear first.
