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 and orthopedic studies. 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 (RIMI).
Health Services will arrange for additional studies such as an ultrasound, MRI, or CT scan to be done off site.
If you have the Brown Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP):
Health Services will submit your x-ray charges directly to the student health insurance plan.
If you have private insurance:
Health Services will bill your x-ray charges to your student bursar account and provide you with a receipt which you may submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Coverage by private insurance companies varies greatly, therefore, we strongly recommend that you check directly with your insurance company regarding if and how x-ray charges may be covered.
