The first thing most patients want to know when it comes to any treatment is: “how much is this going to cost me?” It’s a valid question that you should be asking about your medical care, as well as other purchases. In this article we are going to talk about the general costs associated with prolotherapy treatment, and what you can expect to pay for your treatment.
Prolotherapy & Health Insurance
Currently, most health insurance plans do not cover prolotherapy injections. The reasoning for this is too complicated for this article, but rest assured that prolotherapy is a legitimate pain relief treatment that is widely used by pain physicians.
All health insurance plans are different and you should always check with your health insurance company before undergoing any treatment to learn about your coverage.
Cost of a Prolotherapy Injection
So if prolotherapy is not covered by your health insurance plan, how much can you expect to pay for the treatment? Costs vary by clinic, the number of injections needed, and the area of the body being injected. The initial examination by a physician to determine if prolotherapy may be useful will typically be covered by insurance (depending on your plan), but the injections themselves are not covered by most plans. On average, a prolotherapy injection costs between $150 and $300. If you are curious about how much a specific injection will cost, do not hesitate to contact your doctor’s office to request a price quote.
