In the US, the cost of ketamine infusions have a wide range.Typically ketamine for depression, mood disorders, and other conditions such as PTSD usually cost between $400-$800 per treatment, and is performed as a series of 6 treatments over 2 to 3 weeks.
Ketamine itself is only one of the costs the clinic has to consider that are factored into the price ultimately charged to consumers. Other costs, including qualified staff, the grade of medical equipment, facility upkeep, insurance, supplies, marketing, and more.
The high cost of ketamine infusions can be likened to similar outpatient treatments that require an IV drip, monitors, etc. such as dialysis and chemotherapy, but in this case ketamine infusion for psychiatric purposes are considered “off-label” and therefore typically not covered by insurance. However, since reimbursement and coverage depend entirely on your medical insurance plan and network stipulations, it is worth investigating what diagnosis your plan will cover.
Frequency of dose also varies from patient to patient resulting in price variation, as some patients may require one or two treatments while others may need to undergo multiple treatment sessions. How you respond to the first infusion will be evaluated by your doctor before proceeding with subsequent infusions. Each patient has different needs, so having a tailored treatment approach is a normal and necessary part of the process.
