Payment & Insurance At The Thermogram Center
Payment & Insurance At The Thermogram Center
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.
To learn about your out-of-network benefits, consider posing these questions to your health insurer:
- Do I have out-of-network benefits (or only in-network benefits)?
- If yes:
- Do these benefits cover preventive services, ie CPT code 99386 (preventive medical evaluation)? Do not use the term thermography!
- What percent of such service charges are typically applied towards the out-of-network deductible (or reimbursed to me once the deductible is met)?
- What is my out-of-network deductible and have I met it this annum?
- If no, please consider using Health Savings Account funds, if you have them.
- If yes:

No appointments will be scheduled without a paid $50 deposit at the time of booking. Due to the time and effort involved in arranging appointments, deposits are required to reduce rescheduling and cancellations to better serve all our clients.
- No credit card information is stored in our systems. (Special arrangements can be made for those without credit accounts.)
- All deposits are credited towards your appointment, unless you fail to notify us of a cancellation/reschedule 48 or more business hours ahead by phone call or text to 303-664-1139.
Please alert us of any questions or concerns you may have. We are more than willing to work with people regarding specific circumstances, and fully understand that things and hardships do happen. Please just be sure to keep an open line of communication with us so that everyone is on the same page. We don’t want anyone’s deposit to be forfeited.
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.
About prevention & Appointment Duration
While most appointments require 30 – 90 minutes, we can customize imaging and/or consultation to meet your needs.
Imaging and Consultation Services Include:
IMAGING SERVICES INCLUDE:
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.
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.
