Updates related to Coronavirus
During this challenging time, we want you to know that we remain open and ready to serve your patients as your trusted medical imaging provider. We have created a COVID-19 information page, which we update regularly with our enhanced screening processes and temporary service changes. We've also introduced reserved exam times for vulnerable patients.
Please note that our South Calgary Health clinic is the only Mayfair Diagnostics location that will provide X-ray services for patients who have a COVID-19 positive diagnosis and require X-ray services for other medical conditions. This guide explains how best to proceed when you have a COVID-19 positive patient.
Updates for Chiropractors and Physiotherapists
When diagnostic imaging is needed, chiropractors and physiotherapists will need to advise their patients that these services are now uninsured “patient pay” services, when they are ordered by a chiropractor or physiotherapist. There will be a cost for each examination. Please call our Contact Centre at 403.777.1999 if you would like pricing information.
Chiropractors and physiotherapists will also be unable to refer patients for arthrograms, bone mineral densitometry evaluations, pain therapy procedures*, and nuclear medicine imaging. These services will not be offered as “patient pay” exams. They will need to be ordered by a general practitioner or specialist.
Only X-ray and ultrasound exams will have a “patient pay” option for each exam, when ordered by a chiropractor or physiotherapist. Our price list for these exams is fully in line with the Schedule of Medical Benefits. Mayfair will continue to accept all MRI and CT referrals from chiropractors, and MRI referrals from physiotherapists with an Advanced Certificate, with the exception of MRI and CT arthrograms, on a private pay basis after March 31, 2020.
* Mayfair can provide pre-assessment services where a chiropractic patient might need a spine injection (neck and back). This would include the provision of a treatment plan and pain management options, as well as consultation for physician-directed imaging and ordering of the appropriate pain therapy.
