Research is finding Ketamine Infusion Therapy to be favored over conventional treatment in many cases, and there is a positive developing view as ketamine infusions are becoming a mainstream procedure to address these conditions.
Insurance has been limited by the fact that Ketamine Infusion therapy for treating depression and pain is currently considered off-label.
As a result this has hindered the opportunity for large trials needed for FDA approval, limiting the coverage from insurance companies. However, you should know that insurance coverage can vary greatly and some insurance companies are now considering this treatment as a covered expense.
It is a good idea to contact your insurance company prior to treatment in order to discuss the necessary arrangements for being reimbursed for your expenses.
At this time, many insurance companies may not cover the treatment. However, recently several patients have had success with partial reimbursement with self-filing of claims.
As healthcare professionals, it is our life mission to help people and it is our goal to work with every patient to provide them with the best possible outcomes.
The staff at NeuroMend will make every effort in providing you the proper paperwork and documentation to file with your insurance company to be reimbursed or partially reimbursed for your therapy. Though we cannot determine nor guarantee whether your individual insurance provider will reimburse you, we will work with you personally to guide you throughout the process.
We do not currently submit claims or accept payments from any health insurance provider. Upon request, we will provide an itemized receipt, which may be submitted.
Payment is required either before, or at the time of all services.
NeuroMend Infusion Center accepts payment for your treatments via cash, money order, credit card, or a Health Savings Account.
