Last summer, Bath Community Hospital began offering ketamine infusions, a highly effective treatment for those suffering from treatment-resistant depression.
Ketamine infusion therapy is most helpful for those who have tried at least two traditional anti-depressants (tricyclics, SSRIs, SNRIs, MAOIs) without adequate improvement and/or undesirable side effects. Studies show that Ketamine may help with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD), Postpartum Depression, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Severe Anxiety, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Fibromyalgia, Severe Migraines, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, and Chronic Neuropathic Pain.
“Many patients notice a change in mood and a reduction in pain within an hour of the first treatment” states Dr. Eduard Nemirovsky, a licensed Board-Certified Anesthesiology Physician with Bath Community Hospital, with over 30 years of ketamine infusion experience. “We may suggest a series of treatments to help you achieve optimal results”.
The screening cost is $200 and includes a psychological assessment, a psychological interview with a counselor, a medical history review by an anesthesiologist, and an evaluation after infusions.
The cost for each depression treatment is $375. The cost for each pain treatment is $875.
Ketamine Infusion Therapy for depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other mental health conditions is considered “off-label” use and is not a service typically reimbursed by insurance companies. As such, patients are expected to cover the costs of their treatments.
For chronic pain-related conditions, some insurance companies will cover a portion of the costs associated with Ketamine Infusion Therapy for particular diagnoses. However, reimbursement is entirely dependent upon the individual medical insurance plans and in/out-of-network stipulations.
We recognize that, despite our commitment to keeping our pricing as low as possible, it can still be a financial stretch for many to afford ketamine infusions. Our hospital is offering financial assistance for non-elective services and a sliding scale discount for payment in full. The amount of discount depends on the total charges on the account.
A 10% discount is offered to veterans, active-duty military, retired and active-duty law enforcement, first responders, and other licensed medical professionals.
If finances are a concern, an interest-free payment plan may be an option for you. Please contact 540-839-7054 for more information.
