My friend (who lives in Calgary, Canada) will be visiting Las Vegas. While he’s there, he was planning to get a CAC score done because it’s much less expensive than going to a private clinic in our city.

He contacted a place in Las Vegas that does CAC scans and he was going to book an appointment. But they said he needed a referral.

And the referral has to come from a U.S. doctor.

He doesn’t know any U.S. doctors. Even if he did, the U.S. doctor would most certainly charge a fee to do the referral.

Suddenly, the cost-benefit of him getting the scan in Vegas diminishes. 

He might still be stuck anyway if he can’t even find a U.S. doctor to do the referral.

The company where he was planning to get the scan said they cannot refer any U.S. doctors to my friend.

If he wants a CAC scan, it looks like he’ll have to cough up the big bucks ($595.00 Cdn.) to get it done locally.

Texas will allow it.  State law requires it to be covered for everyone and you can self-refer if you are 40, I think.
