What is a Service Contract & Why Do I Need One?
We are so glad you asked. A service contract from Preferred Medical, an Adhelo company, is like insurance for your ultrasound system. We offer two levels of protection – Quality and Premium, and at either level we guarantee to never let any system covered under contract to be down for more than 72 hours MAX. If we cannot get you up and running like new within 72 hours, we will provide a loaner system until we get you fixed up. In addition to responding quickly to any service issues that come up, we offer a yearly Preventative Maintenance Plan. This is done to make sure your ultrasound system(s) perform as well or better than they did the day you purchased them.

Why do you need a service contract from Preferred Medical?
For those who are more concerned with the risks involved in not having a service contract as opposed to the benefits of having one – take a look at this:
|Common Service Calls and Associated Out of Pocket Cost|
|Transducer Replacement||$9,500 – 14,500|
|Power Supply Replacement||$6,500 – 9,500|
|Bad Beamformer||$9,500 – 17,500|
|Bad PC Board||$6,300 – 8,900|
These are conservative estimates and the cost is dependent on part availability and travel time as well.
There will be a few who say, “My system has never had any problems. I don’t need to pay x amount just in case something were to happen.” This is usually followed by wood knocking and shortly thereafter, a phone call to us asking if we can come take a look at their ultrasound system or a transducer that stopped working properly. Please don’t be one of those poor souls. We love you, and we don’t want to see you get hurt by high, unexpected out-of-pocket service costs. So please don’t wait.
