Barium Swallow Referrals

Edit

Barium Swallow referrals with video require patients to go to both Speech Pathology for an initial evaluation and then to Radiology for the procedure. Luckily, both appointments can be completed by the patient on the same day.

Barium Swallow referrals without video can be scheduled directly at Radiology.

Once a patient has successfully received charity care, the Referrals team will notify the TS, confirm that the referral is still necessary, and schedule the patient's appointment.

Cost

Cost to EHHOP Patient: This referral requires charity care. For patients with Level 1, the Barium Swallow w/ video will cost $30. Barium Swallows w/o video will cost $15. To find out the costs for patients who are not Level 1, please contact the Radiology Referrals Manager.

Wait time

How long it takes patients to complete their appointment will depend on how soon the patients can submit all their documents confirming their income to Financial Services (on Average this takes 20 days). Once all documents are submitted, it takes about 4 weeks after a patient has received charity care for a barium swallow appointment.
