When considering ketamine therapy, nearly all patients have questions about cost. Is the treatment expensive? Is it covered by my insurance? What do my payments cover? In this article, we’ll explain your ketamine infusion costs so you can come to your first treatment prepared.
Ketamine Infusion Costs: What is Included?
Firstly, it’s important to note that everyone’s ketamine infusion costs will be slightly different. There is no “one size fits all” price, as the treatment is tailored to your needs. Also keep in mind- when you receive ketamine therapy, you are receiving more than just the drug itself. When you pay for your infusion, you are paying for the medication, the care needed to administer the drug properly, and also for monitoring during the infusion.
Is Insurance Accepted?
We accept a variety of insurance plans. However, not all healthcare plans accept ketamine therapy as it is often seen as an “off label” treatment for issues like depression and anxiety. That said, there are many different aspects of ketamine treatment, and we can send multiple claims to your insurance company. Even if your infusion itself is not covered, another part of the treatment might be.
What About Medicare?
All of our providers accept Medicare and will file claims directly with your Medicare and/or supplemental insurance company. However, just like with private insurance, Medicare might not cover all aspects of your therapy. We can help you understand which aspects of your care you will need to pay for.
