Is thermography covered by insurance?

There are a few insurance companies that I know of that do cover Thermography, which are Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, and Humana. I personally do not know of others.  You may check with your insurance company.  Here is the code:     Billing Code - 93740.    Check with your insurance company to be sure. However, it is covered by most FSA and HSA programs. I am sorry, but we only issue a receipt - - we DO NOT file any insurance paperwork, that will be up to you to follow through with.  

Also, grants to help pay for breast thermography scans are available through the United Breast Cancer Foundation(UBCF) at http://ubcf.org/breast-screeningApplications are open when funding is available. If you "DO NOT" see the   APPLY BUTTON that allows you to donate $5.00 - - then funding has been maxed for the month. Applications typically re open the first of each month.   UBCF site:   http://ubcf.org/breast-screening 

Are you a woman or man in need of a breast screening? UBCF will assist you with a free or low cost breast screening regardless of age, income, gender, race, ethnicity or health insurance coverage. UBCF funds a variety of breast screening technologies, from mammography and ultrasound to breast thermography and MRI. Please note, due to the great need for this program, UBCF is unable to assist with screenings that have already taken place. In order to receive UBCF support, please apply for a breast screening and receive your approval before you receive your breast screening.

Breast Screening Pay It Forward Contribution

Kindly submit your Pay It Forward Contribution of $5.00 in order to access the Breast Screening Program application.

If the APPLY is not showing - - DO NOT go to other places on their website.  WAIT UNTIL you click on this link:    http://ubcf.org/breast-screening    and you see the $5.00 donation button.  The button only shows up when they are giving out the grant.  If it's not showing - keep checking back.

Please know that your Pay It Forward Contribution is immediately invested back into the Breast Screening Program to assist women and men just like you. Once you have submitted your application, the UBCF will be in touch with you within 7 business days.

  4. UBCF assists with base-line thermography, however, the 2nd screening of a baseline is covered at a lesser amount.
  5. UBCF will not pay for screenings that have taken place prior to an application being submitted, approved and a Breast Screening Grant Award provided to the applicant.

Health Sharing Programs


1. What are Medical Cost Sharing Ministries?

Boiled down, medical cost sharing, or health sharing ministries, are a group of like-minded individuals that agree to come together and help each other pay their medical expenses. They offer faith-based programs for planning for unforeseen medical expenses. They're not for everyone, but they are definitely worth exploring!

Since it is not health insurance, they don't have to play by the same rules. For instance, since there are no network requirements, you can go to whatever doctor you like. Once you enroll, you get a membership card, and when your doctor asks for your insurance, you can just give them your card. For many of the above programs, it will be processed in the same way.

On the rare occasion that the doctor will not accept your membership, these health sharing programs do pay in cash. That means you can always get reimbursed if you choose to stay with that doctor and pay out of pocket.


2. How do they work?

Basically, everyone pays in a certain monthly share amount, and for your own expenses, you are responsible for covering an “annual personal responsibility”, or “unshared amount” (like a deductible). Then, the rest of your medical expenses are shared among the group from what they have paid in – in many cases up to $1 million per incident! Here's a brief video explanation that might help.


3. Are there Restrictions?

Yes. Since they are faith-based ministries, they do have different guidelines (like smoking, or certain pre-existing health or lifestyle-related conditions). In which case they will decline membership.

I know Liberty Healthshare does take people with pre-existing health conditions – they accept about 97% of them. These types of conditions may be handled in a few different ways. The condition may be phased in. If that's the case, members do not share costs for that condition during the first year. Then during years two and three of membership, members share up to $50,000 of eligible expenses to treat that condition. However, some pre-existing conditions might never be shareable. You can always just call an ask.


4. Are there programs for families?

Yes! They have programs for the entire family. Your family can participate in a very comprehensive option for under $500 a month, which is a maximum. There is a range of options less expensive than that depending on how much you want shared.

For me, my children tend to go to the doctor more frequently, so they have a health insurance plan for them, and we use a medical cost-sharing ministry since we go to the doctor less frequently. But there are options that do include wellness visits.


5. What is the difference between the health care sharing ministries?

All four of the above medical cost sharing ministries are very similar, but there are some differences among them. The largest differences are in their acceptance guidelines, if they process medical bills electronically or not, and if they allow cost sharing of alternative or natural treatments.

Beyond that, I found this FAQ extremely helpful. It had a very informative and clear answer for every question I could even think of asking.

If you are looking for an affordable way to handle your medical expenses, a health sharing ministry could be just what you need.

***Disclaimer: Breast thermography offers women information that no other procedure can provide. However, breast thermography is not a replacement for or alternative to mammography or any other form of breast imaging. Breast thermography is meant to be used in addition to mammography and other tests or procedures. Breast thermography and mammography are complementary procedures, one test does not replace the other. All thermography reports are meant to identify thermal emissions that suggest potential risk markers only and do not in any way suggest diagnosis and/or treatment. Studies show that the earliest detection is realized when multiple tests are used together. This multimodal approach includes breast self-examinations, physical breast exams by a doctor, mammography, ultrasound, MRI, Pet Scan, thermography, and other tests that may be ordered by your doctor.
