Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some frequently asked patients from our patients. If you have a question, please feel free to contact us.
Thermography has been recognized as a viable diagnostic tool since 1987 by the AMA Council on Scientific Affairs, the ACA Council on Diagnostic Imaging, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons in 1988 and in 1990 by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
When referred by a physician, one copy of the scan reults will be sent to the refferring physician and ione copy will be sent directly to you. If there is no referring physician, both copies go to you.
My doctor states he does not know enough about thermal imaging and demands that I still get a mammogram. What should I do?
If not thermography, ask for a different method (ultrasound, breast MRI, ductal lavage) as a substitute. In any case, thermography can be used in conjunction with a mammogram by assessing false-positives or concurring with a sketchy mammogram.
It is up to us to get the word out about the benefits of Thermography and dangers of Mammography to all doctors and radiologists.
If you still wish to check with your insurance company, call and inquire about thermography or thermal imaging insurance coverage for your specific condition.
If you desire a Health Insurance Claim Form (HICFA) you will be given one with the codes already on the form.
Fill out your personal information on the form and send it to your insurance company. There are no guarantees you will in fact be covered. You will still have to pay for the scan upfront.
If your insurance does cover the scan, a reimbursement check for the scan will be sent to you or the balance will come off of your deductible.
Some clients may wish to remain anonymous to the insurance company for personal reasons – or if they are changing insurance companies. We respect the confidentiality of each client.
