Pricing & Insurance At The Thermogram Center

Regarding Insurance:

Our service codes are covered by insurers, but we are out-of-network. Health Sharing, Flexible Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts typically cover 100%. We cannot guarantee coverage. While we are a fee-for-service provider, we will provide you with a helpful Insurance Reimbursement Handout and a Visit Statement for use in filing a claim for reimbursement.

 

Forms of Payment:

We ask that clients pay at the time of service or over a payment plan. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, cash and checks. (Checks are restricted to Front Range residents). Service costs exceeding $200 can be paid over a two-month payment plan and costs exceeding $400 over a four-month payment plan. Payment plans are restricted to Front Range residents and are by check only. All payment-plan checks must be provided at the time of service and a one-time only handling fee of $5.00 applies for the four-month plan.

 

Frequency of Follow-Up:

While the Abdomen, Back and Face Series for men and women is typically recommended every 3 - 5 years (unless there is an issue/concern that warrants more frequent monitoring) breast imaging is recommended based on Thermobiological Risk Ratings, (like the Bi-Rads scale used in mammography). Low/lowest levels of risk correspond to a 12-month follow-up, medium level to 6-months, and high/highest level to 3-months. So, unlike most Colorado thermographers, we do NOT recommend that every first-time client repeat their service in just 3 months!!!

Recommended Guidelines for Services

Recommended Guidelines for Services:

  • Choose imaging only if you are well experienced with our services, having had at least one consultation/image review.
  • Choose the imaging and review/consultation if you are a first-time client, a repeat client with increasing risk ratings, or a client who hasn't had a review/consultation for 3 or more years .
  • Choose the Breast and Abdomen, Back and Face Series if you are a first-time client or have not had the Abdomen, Back and Face Series for 3 or more years
  • Choose just risk factor management consultation if you are not an imaging client, or are unable to travel to our imaging locations, but are seeking risk factor management consultation.

--- Video Included --- Also, unlike most Colorado thermographers, first-time clients receive video to watch at home prior to their appointment.

Imaging and Consultation Services Include:

IMAGING SERVICES INCLUDE:

Interpretive reporting
Color and B&W images
Thermobiological Risk Ratings (one for each breast)
Hormonal Grade

 

CONSULTATION SERVICES INCLUDE:

Videos for All First-Time Clients:

The ~45-minute Abdomen, Back and Face video and ~ 60-minute Breast video explain the terminology used in Risk Assessing Thermal Imaging, what the interpretive doctor looks for in images, and explains a variety of findings as seen in thermal images that led to further evaluation and diagnoses for breast and lung cancers, tooth socket infection, organ issues, thyroid dysfunction and more.

Image Reviews: 

When thermal images are available, we take a holistic approach to the body, discussing what potential findings are connected to others throughout the body, what risk factors might be causing those findings, where to go for further evaluation, if warranted, and what action steps can be taken for improvement. We capture this information on your Actions Checklist.

For clients with prior imaging, we compare prior images to current ones, discuss any obvious changes and perform the above review.

When no thermal images are available, we discuss your symptoms, complaints and health goals and the risk factors likely presenting areas for improvement. We capture this information on your Actions Checklist.

When consultations are provided outside of an imaging session, they are provided via phone and computer.

Educational Handouts Include:

Educational Handouts:

Framework for Health This 35+ page handout supports gut health, where life & death starts. It provides information on how to improve overall health by improving the diet (how, what, when and why to eat) and the ability to eliminate (after each meal). Includes 17+ levels of refinement for the diet, 9 risk factors for colon cancer, and colon tests beyond colonoscopy.

Dental Care & Resources This 5 page handout supports dental and oral care, where tooth socket infections are all too common and potentially life-threatening. It provides information on: alternatives to clenching, metals/titanium and root canals; U.S. and Colorado-based dental specialists, including mercury safe dentists, cavitation surgeons, and administrators of ozone and frontal (vs full) guards; coconut oil pulling, oral rinses, essential oils, toothbrushes and toothpastes; and the tooth and organ chart showing which organs are connected to which teeth.

Miscellaneous Information This 2 page handout provides information on: how to improve bone density naturally; eight tests for female organs of the abdomen; alternatives to the PSA (prostate) test; how to travel safely through airport security with food, snacks, medications and supplements; and what questions to ask when cancer is diagnosed in order to choose treatment plans appropriately.

Supportive Documents Include:

Supportive Documents:

Community Resource Sheet(s) list hundreds of integrative, natural, alternative, and/or holistic health professionals listed by specialty in your area (of Colorado).

How to Obtain Further Evaluation/Communicate with Your Doctor provides information on how to obtain an ultrasound or MRI when warranted by Risk Assessing Thermal Imaging.

 

Clients most often choose…

Clients most often choose the upper and lower body series because they are experiencing symptoms or simply as a non-invasive means of obtaining potential early information relevant to their state of health. The Thermogram Center's Advanced Thermography may raise the index of suspicion for something potentially life threatening, i.e. hypervascularity when it is associated with cancer. However, more common yet significant information may include findings that raise the index of suspicion for dental infection, which can be invisible to dental x-ray, but extremely relevant to bodily health. When significant thermal findings are visible, further evaluation of suspect conditions with the client's doctor is recommended. (Community Resource Sheets are available to preventive clients for use in finding doctors, dentists, and functional medicine specialists in their local community.)

 

Most often, because of the sensitivity of the camera, thermal imaging may raise the index of suspicion for stress, irritation, inflammation, infection, or congestion... which may occur without symptoms (and be subclinical). For instance, most of us hold tension/stress in our back muscles, so muscular irritation is commonplace. In other words, most of the time, this series delivers "nice to know" information about the functioning of the body. When thermal findings raise the index of suspicion for potential risk factors, then risk factor education and management is recommended with qualified health professionals/functional medicine specialists.

 

Note: Since not all health conditions present thermally, thermal imaging should not be used as a stand-alone test. Similarly, the absence of thermal findings cannot rule out significant health conditions.
