How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and they will add another grand or two to the price for the professional fee.



I found some useful information from this blog, Medical Prices Data in the Philippines. The article about MRI pricing contains a sizeable comment section wherein people comment on their recent experience and how did much did it cost. The latest was just early this year so the prices is fairly recent.

Our receipt. I covered the private details.

If you recently had a MRI scan, please leave a comment and tell us what type of MRI scan did you do, when, what laboratory you got the scan from and how much did it cost you. Anonymous comments are welcome! This is just to help others find the cheapest possible MRI in their locality.

  1. Hi,

    In Cebu, MRI scans range from 10,000 to 18,000 depending in the hospitals. Cheapest so far I've seen is at UCMED 10,000 without contrast, to 15,000 with contrast color. Insurance covers only up to 5000 pesos, if it is done outpatient, and most MRI scans are recommended as outpatients unless you are admitted as an emergency patient

    1. pwede naman siguro. just try lang baka pumayag. unfortunately there is no cure as of now. painkillers are temporary but as soon as nawala na bisa ng painkiller, the pain goes back again. there are many types of arthritis. the most common type are: osteoarthritis (oa) rhuematoid arthritis (ra), and gout. iwas lang sa mga foods na mataas sa uric acid. pero kung oa na yan, that is part na ng pag tanda ng tao...kung ang oa ay sa tuhod, knee replacement or surgery na ang kailangan.

  35. Iloilo City po kami ito po pla ang rate. For Lumbosacral Plain. 3 hospital check namin ang rates. Rates varies po kasi depende kung anu ang need ng patient na kelangan i MRI.

    For Lumbosacral Plain lng po ito.

    Western Visayas Medical Center (WVMC) PHP 4500 + Professional Fee 1625 ( government hospital po ito, pero OPD kasi kami saka private doctor kaya yan ang rate, pero kung jan mismo na admit at nibrequest din sa mismong hospital baka mababa pa ang rate or libre lng)


    Qualimed Hospital - Php 12000 not including professional fee . D na namin tinanong.

    West Visayas State University Hospital. -Php 8000 d na natanong magkano ang professional fee.

    Sa nabanggit po na rates d pa po kasama yung bayad sa Anaesthesiologist sakaling need tlaga ni patient ng ganun. Pag kaya nman ng patient for the entire MRI procedure na hindi gumalaw no need na ng anaestesiologist.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store and I would like to share the steps I took in order to secure my account and get a new passbook. The steps outlined here is for a BPI savings account but generally the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and the most crucial step you need to immediately do is to contact your bank either through phone or personally reporting it to the branch where you opened the account. This will ensure that no funds will get out. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 89-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the lost. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for Replacement of Passbook This can be a simple replacement of the lost passbook but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu
