How Much Does Ketamine Treatment Cost?
April 02, 2021
Roughly 1 in 4 Americans have reported skipping medical care due to the cost, a CNBC article reported in 2020.
The cost of treatment can be a potential deal breaker in your medical decision-making. It may also — ultimately — be a hindrance in your journey to wellness, no matter what kind of treatment you’re seeking.
The same goes for ketamine treatment.
If traditional forms of medication have failed you and you believe ketamine could be a potential solution, you may be interested in learning how much treatment costs.
We’ve got you covered.
In this article, we’ll explain what you can expect in regards to general ketamine treatment cost, payment options and discounts.
What Does Ketamine Treatment Typically Cost?
As you’re researching, you’ll come across ketamine infusions costing anywhere from $400 – $2,000. You may wonder to yourself, ‘Why the wide range?’
Because ketamine has a variety of uses, the cost of treatment will vary based on each individual’s unique case.
While each patient is receiving therapy in the same manner (e.g. infusions), the cost of treatment is determined by several factors, such as:
- Dosage / duration of infusion
So, what does that mean exactly?
Where you receive treatment, in regards to the provider and the location, will impact the cost of treatment. For example, a patient who is interested in receiving treatment in an area where ketamine treatment isn’t as available may be subjected to higher costs as opposed to an area where there are more ketamine clinics.
The condition being treated will also impact the cost of treatment. Doses will vary depending on if the patient is seeking treatment for a mood disorder or pain condition. To effectively treat a pain condition, a higher dose and longer infusion is given in comparison to the dosage and duration for a mood disorder.
According to Ketamine Clinics Directory, a full series of ketamine infusions for mood disorders can range from $1,600 – $4,800. For pain conditions, you may see a full series cost $1,400 to $12,000.
At MD Infusions, your initial treatment — also known as “induction therapy” — starts with a total of six, one-hour infusions. These are given 2-3 times per week for 2-3 weeks.
Patients can also receive maintenance therapy to continue feeling great. One-hour treatment is provided about every 4 weeks depending on the response to their initial therapy.
We offer infusions at $475 per infusion. When you pre-pay, you get $180 off your 6 initial infusions with each infusion costing $445.
We recommend speaking with several physicians to learn more about the cost of their ketamine treatment and the care they provide. That way, you can make an informed decision on the best treatment for you, at a price that works best for you.
What Payment Options are Available for Ketamine Therapy?
Since ketamine is considered an off-label treatment, insurance companies do not cover the cost of ketamine treatment at this time. While this can be discouraging and may even prevent some eligible candidates from pursuing treatment, it’s important to note that there are options.
The goal for physicians is to keep an innovative treatment like ketamine infusion therapy affordable so patients can have access to this treatment. However, whether a provider offers payment options is entirely up to them.
If you’re considering MD Infusions, we currently offer two options for people to choose from. These include self-pay and patient financing through the Advance Care Card.
The Advance Card is for anyone who would like to pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance. It is a quick, easy way to finance your therapy. With the Advance Care Card, you can expect low-interest rates and flexible terms.
We are firm believers that every eligible candidate should be able to get well, live free and be happy through receiving treatment.

Do Clinics Offer Discounts on the Cost of Ketamine Treatment?
Clinics may offer special discounts on ketamine. They can be seasonal, for certain personnel such as active and retired military and first responders, or simply a price reduction for scheduling your treatment in advance.
If you’d like high-quality care at a reduced rate, we offer 15% off treatment if you schedule your ketamine induction series. Or if you’d prefer, 3 vitamin or NAD+ infusions for hydration and health. Our offers are valid for a limited time.
