Treatment and Cost
For Major Depression, it is highly recommended that 5 treatments be administered over 12-18 days. If you are apprehensive about Ketamine or whether it will work, we can proceed one treatment at a time. Each IV infusion is 60 minutes (longer with infusions for Chronic Pain).
Please note: the intranasal Ketamine spray is prescribed after 3 or more IV infusions under the supervision of Dr. Mahjoubi (infusions completed in the care of another physician are not accepted as a substitute).
Pricing is as follows for Depression and other mood disorders:
Chronic Pain Patients:
One 100mg Treatment 1.5-2 hours
One 250 mg Treatment- 3 to 4 hours
One 400 mg Treatment - 4 to 6 hours
Insurance coverage: The great majority of insurance companies do not pay for IV Ketamine treatments at this time. We are happy to provide a copy of the procedure record and receipt for treatment so that you may attempt to get coverage through insurance. Furthermore, some insurance companies ask for pre-authorization, which is obtained either from your Psychiatrist if you are seeing us for Depression, or an Internist, Surgeon, or Pain Management physician if you have chronic pain. Pre-authorization from a Ketamine provider is not accepted by insurance companies at this time.
