Heart Scan FAQ

Q: What is a heart scan?

A: A heart scan, also called a heart CT scan or calcium scoring, is a simple, noninvasive method that tells your doctor if you're at increased risk for the most common form of heart disease – coronary artery disease (CAD). This scan identifies whether calcium deposits are present in the arteries of your heart. The more calcium deposits you have, the more plaque. And that can lead to a heart attack.

Q: I don’t have a primary care doctor. Can I still book an appointment?

A: You will need to provide the name of a primary care doctor you have seen in the past two years in order to schedule. If you don’t have a primary care doctor, search for a doctor online.

Q: Is this scan covered by insurance?

A: This scan, priced at $49, is self-pay only. Your insurance company won’t be billed. Check with your insurance to see if you can submit a claim for reimbursement.

Q: Are there any other fees?

A: The scan is $49 – no other fees.

Q: Does this involve radiation exposure?

A: Heart scans use a type of X-ray, so there is exposure to radiation.

Q: Can this be done even after having a bypass or a heart stent?

A: If you’ve already been diagnosed with heart disease, a heart scan isn’t for you. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions instead.

Q: Can you have this done with a pacemaker?

A: If you have a pacemaker, please consult your doctor

Q: Does it check carotid arteries too?

A: No, it does not.

Q: How often should I get a heart scan?

A: If you had a scan before and it was normal, you should repeat it every 5 years. If your scan was abnormal, you can repeat it after 3 years.
