PAYMENT:

 Although the medical administration cost of ketamine infusions or injections is not covered by any insurance plans, most people find the investment worthwhile given the high impact. There is a cost difference between unguided treatments and guided treatment sessions (which are not billable to insurance due to being longer than a standard therapy session), but adequate preparation therapy can make unguided sessions just as effective in some cases. Contact me and I will connect you to the Wellward Patient Navigator for more information about pricing.

 

Wellward Medical does accept most major insurances for all related preparation and integration therapy sessions, which are billed the same as as regular mental therapy sessions. The out-of-pocket fee is $110.

 

SCHEDULING:

While a series of ketamine treatments in close succession (a maximum of two weeks between treatment) is typically recommended for treatment-resistant depression, this reflects research done on the pharmacological benefits of ketamine alone. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, or the use of ketamine to address trauma or other emotional issues underlying depression for a more lasting outcome, may actually benefit from a slower pace that allows more time for therapeutic planning and integration between sessions. Contact me with specific questions.

OTHER QUESTIONS:

If you read the pages on Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and the Internal Family Systems therapy approach and still have questions about what to expect, contact me with specific questions.
