How To Monitor a 4K Timeline in Premiere CC

So I'm pretty new to Premiere in general, having finally been forced out of FCP 7 because of my new FS7 camera's codec. I just got a new 4K monitor connected to my IMac 5K Retina machine via thunderbolt, and my question is:
Am I correct in my finding that there is no way to monitor a 4K timeline on my second 4K monitor just through the machine's graphics card?
The monitor is connected to the IMac and it is running as a second monitor in UHD, but I cannot get PP to output to it when I select it as an option in the "Playback" preferences window.
It appears I will need to buy a thunderbolt 4K monitoring solution from AJA or Black Magic, but those are currently $1K or more right now and I was hoping to avoid that.
What say you all? How are you guys and gals monitoring your 4K timelines in 4K out of Premiere?
