Medical technology is not readily available, and in turn, highly expensive in Charlotte, NC. Research shows the national average for an ultrasound during pregnancy is $275. In North Carolina that price is $372, and in Charlotte specifically, it is $508. Not only are prices for CT scans and MRIs more than the state and national average in Charlotte, the price of medical services in general is 20% higher than the national average. These number come from the work of economists and analysts at the Health Care Cost Institute.
