Health Services maintains an on site x-ray service which is licensed by the RI Department of Health. We perform basic studies such as chest x-rays, extremities and back, etc. All images are initially read by our provider staff and are then sent for a reading by a radiologist. Our contracted radiology group is Rhode Island Medical Imaging.
Health Services will arrange for additional studies (ie. ultrasound, MRI, CT scans) to be done off site.
If you have the Brown sponsored insurance plan:
Health Services can submit your x-ray claim directly to the student health insurance plan.
If you have private insurance:
X-ray charges for insurance plans, other than the Brown sponsored plan, will be billed to your student bursar account. A receipt will be provided which you may submit to your company for possible reimbursement. Coverage by private insurance companies varies greatly-we strongly recommend that you check directly with your insurance company regarding if and how x-ray charges may be covered.
Our X-ray department is open when classes are in session during regular clinic hours.
