Is Thermography Covered by Insurance?
Unfortunately, it is not a covered service by insurance companies. At one time thermography was covered and is still being pushed to be a covered service. Look for a discount off Thermography in May and October for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Are you certified in Thermography and who reads the images?
I became certified in thermography in 2013 by Dr. William Amalu who has taken a very active role in Thermography research. He is also the reading physician for Simply Women's Health thermography images.
Any special requirements or instructions for thermography.
When coming to Simply Women's Health for a breast thermogram you are acclimated to a cooler room setting for at least 10 minutes prior to taking images. Take a look at the Pre-Instruction Sheet for do's and don'ts prior to having a Thermogram. You can also print and bring the Breast Intake Form to your appointment.
