Ketamine infusions have been changing the lives of people who struggle with medically-resistant mental health challenges, chronic pain, drug addiction, alcoholism, and more in recent years. Ketamine’s revolutionary medical potential has caught the attention of many doctors who are eager to use ketamine for depression, anxiety, post-partum, bipolar, and more.

However, due to the new-ness of ketamine and mental health awareness, ketamine treatments are not yet covered by most insurance plans. Nonetheless, we here at Virginia Infusions Therapy Center strive to make ketamine infusions available and affordable to everyone, no matter insurance coverage. Read below to find out financing options for ketamine infusions!

Writing as Therapy

As mentioned before, the benefits behind ketamine for mental health struggles are relatively new discoveries. The FDA has yet to approve ketamine infusions for mental health, although this is hopeful to change as the FDA recently approved ketamine nasal spray medication for depression. Undoubtedly, once the FDA approves ketamine infusion therapy for mental health, insurance companies will begin to add coverage for infusions. But, this may not happen for years to come as ketamine is still considered experimental and under further investigation.

However, FDA approval is not the only reason insurance companies have yet to cover ketamine infusions at this time. Lack of widespread knowledge is another contributing factor. When people call their insurance providers and ask about ketamine infusions, most agents aren’t aware of what ketamine infusions are, much less whether they’re covered in insurance plans. This is a reflection of the general population, who aren’t yet aware of the benefits of ketamine infusion therapy and only associate ketamine with the party drug or veterinary services. Slowly, this trend is reversing as the benefits of ketamine are being explored and realized. 

How Much Do Ketamine Infusions Cost?

The exact cost of ketamine infusion therapy varies due to the highly individualized nature of the medication. For example, if you are receiving initiation treatments for depression, there will be 4 treatments in total and the ketamine doses will be monitored depending on your needs. On the other hand, ketamine treatments for pain conditions are 3 treatments. Below are the specifics of these two schedules:

Initiation Treatments for Depression( 4 treatments total ) 

  • 2 treatments the first week
  • 2 treatments the second week
  • Our Ketamine infusion specialists will monitor your improvement and manage the dose of Ketamine during these sessions, to provide you maximum benefit.

Initiation Treatments for Pain Conditions ( 3 treatments total ) 

  • 3 treatments the first week.  Each treatment is approximately 4-hours in length.
  • Our Ketamine infusion specialists will monitor your improvement and manage the dose of Ketamine during these sessions, to provide you maximum benefit.

After this, maintenance treatments and follow-up treatments are scheduled based on need, schedule, and other factors in order to maintain the results and help you feel as best as you can.
