How To Get Your Ketamine Treatment Reimbursed by Blue Cross Blue Shield?

While Ketamine itself is FDA approved, Ketamine Treatment is not.

Given this, Blue Cross Blue Shield's policies regarding Ketamine are currently in the process of being shaped.

The great news? Your case can help shape BCBS's policy regarding Ketamine Therapy.

One Ketamine patient gives his testimony to this process.

Within one phone call, this patient educated BCBS about the success he received from Ketamine Treatments, contrasted against previous, unsuccessful treatments.

The result? Two of his follow-up Ketamine treatments were refunded by BCBS.

Yes, it can be that simple! And it should be. 

After all, one study indicates that over 20% of drugs in America are used for non-FDA-approved indications (called "off-label use"), at the discretion of the administering physician.

Ketamine Infusions fall within this category.
