The Cost of Ketamine Infusion Therapy

The cost of ketamine infusion therapy might seem like a lot when you first hear the price. The reality is that there are a lot of resources involved in providing this kind of therapy. In addition to expertly administering ketamine, these treatment costs already include:

  • A private room with a recliner
  • The use of a smart TV for music and movies
  • Comprehensive health and physical by a medical professional
  • Psychological assessment
  • Supplemental medications you may need during the treatment
  • Vitals monitoring throughout the procedure to ensure comfort

Initial stabilization treatment is usually done within 3 to 4 weeks. The ongoing treatments administered after the stabilization treatment is called maintenance treatment. Maintenance protocol varies depending on the patient, and our medical team works with you on developing a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.

 

Ketamine therapy vs oral medications

Before the use of Ketamine, patients may have been using a number of oral medications (antidepressants, opioids) that can have serious side effects. The price of these medications can also be very expensive and, at times, take weeks or months to work. Ketamine has been shown to be an effective treatment offering minimal side effects.

 

Do insurance companies cover ketamine treatment?

Insurance companies typically do not cover the cost of ketamine infusions for mental health treatments. However, some insurances will cover a portion of costs associated with ketamine if it is used to treat chronic pain.

Additionally, Ketamine intranasal or Esketamine nasal spray received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in early 2019 as a viable treatment for depression. Because it’s FDA approved, this nasal spray treatment may be covered by health insurance. It may also be part of a maintenance treatment as some insurance companies do accept coverage for “treatment-resistant depression.”
