Can you bill my insurance?
Currently, there are no codes which would allow us to bill any insurance carrier. Insurance does NOT currently cover any thermographic screenings.
What forms of payment are accepted?
We accept cash, check, or credit card. Credit cards accepted are: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
HSA/ FSA cards will occasionally be accepted. However, most plans will allow you to submit your receipt for reimbursement. Each Plan is different, we recommend that you contact your specific HSA/FSA to inquire about coverage.
What happens after my scan?
Following your scan, your images will be reviewed by 3 levels of Thermologists. Then, a report containing their findings and recommendations will be sent back to the clinic. At your scan appointment we will schedule a follow up visit to review this interpretation report together and further answer any questions you have as well as get you connected with necessary providers or services should that interest you. Obtaining results can take up to 2 weeks due to the complexity of the interpretation process.
How often should I be scanned?
Health Screenings are a personal decision. Thermography is beneficial because there is zero harm to the body. You could be scanned as frequently as you request. We recommend a yearly full body scan to assess for optimal health.
On average, females will need 2 scans within their first year to develop a baseline for comparison of their breast screening, typically 6 months apart. However, this will be determined by the interpreting Thermologists following your initial screening.
Does this screening replace my mammogram?
Health Screenings are a personal decision that is up to each individual and their provider. Thermography is a great adjunctive screening for detecting physiological changes in the body that happen when breast cancer is developing. Thermography cannot diagnose breast cancer, only a biopsy of the breast can do that.
Some women choose to utilize thermography as a screening tool as it poses no harm to the body. Thermography is radiation free, no compression, and non-invasive.
Studies have shown that you have the best specificity when you combine thermography with an anatomical screening such as ultrasound.
