Outpatient Diagnostic Center is Spreading the Word about Reducing Out-of-Pocket Healthcare Costs with "Random Acts of Value"

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Outpatient Diagnostic Center, a medical imaging provider with locations in Huntsville and Madison, has launched a series of "Random Acts of Value" to spread the word about opportunities to save up to 33 percent on out-of-pocket costs for procedures like MRIs, CT scans, mammograms, ultrasound, X-rays, bone density tests, nuclear medicine, and fluoroscopy.

"As an outpatient center, our cost of doing business is lower and we can pass the savings on to our patients, without compromising quality," said Colette McGill, Administrator, Outpatient Diagnostic Center. "Hospitals charge more for imaging services, period.   When patients come to one of our American College of Radiology accredited centers, they benefit from the same quality equipment, technologists, and radiologists. It's like buying gold jewelry for the price of silver."

To broaden awareness of the lower rates, Outpatient Diagnostic Center is sponsoring "Random Acts of Value"—events in partnership with other local businesses known for outstanding quality and value. The events feature discounts from the partnering businesses and information about reducing healthcare costs by choosing Outpatient Diagnostic Center when a doctor orders a test.

The series was launched on the Sunday of the big game (February 2) at Mellow Mushroom's Huntsville locations, offering $5.00 off on large pizzas. Additional events will be publicized via local media outlets and the partnering businesses, as well as at the Outpatient Diagnostic Center facilities and on their website at http://odchuntsville.com.
