Bottom Line

The out-of-pocket cost for an x-ray at urgent care will be between $120- $325. At the emergency room, the cost ranges between $260 and $460. However, additional fees and views can cause the price to inflate even more. The price you pay may depend on the number of x-rays you get, administrative fees, additional tests, and procedures. If you have insurance, the cost of an x-ray will also depend on your co-pay once you have reached your deductible.
