Imaging tests that are performed for a patient at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, and for nearly every hospital in the United States, are typically billed in two components, the Technical component and the Professional component.
The Technical component pays the institution that creates the images, and is designed to compensate for the costs of equipment, supplies, technicians, and the facility, but not for the interpretation of the service. At Newton-Wellesley Hospital, the Technical component is paid to the hospital. The Technical component is always the much larger component of the total charge to the Insurance Company or to the patient.
At NWH, the Professional component is paid to the physicians of Newton-Wellesley Radiology Associates. This payment is for the interpretation of the x-ray or imaging test that was performed and for supplying the official report of that examination to the referring primary care or specialist physician who ordered the examination.
