Sutter Health Co.’s prices outstrip others’
San Francisco Chronicle

After Mark Logsdon tore a ligament in his knee skiing at Lake Tahoe in March, he returned home to suburban Sacramento and had an MRI scan at Sutter Davis Hospital.

Sutter’s price for the knee scan was $1,271, payable by Logsdon and his insurer, Anthem Blue Cross. An identical MRI at one of the local imaging centers owned by Radiological Associates of Sacramento would have cost $696 – 45 percent less.
