Our Commitment to Accessibility
The staff at Cellular Healing are constantly looking for methods to reduce the cost while improving the outcomes of this procedure. Overall, our costs have been reduced substantially over the past few years. We also realize that not all patients are the same and that some may be able to benefit from lower cost harvesting and processing devices.
Furthermore, some patients are requesting comprehensive treatment packages including exercise, nutrition and adjunctive health promoting therapies. For these reasons, we offer a wide variety of options to fit every patient’s arthritic condition and desires for additional, adjunctive proven therapies.
Our team would be happy to review these options with you one-on-one to find the best fit based on your condition and personal desires.
Procedure Cost & Package Options
Cellular Healing offers very effective bone marrow stem cell therapies starting at $2,750 for the basic stem cell therapy.
However, our ultimate stem cell therapy package offers state of the art stem cell processing and two additional customized platelet rich plasma injections, coupled with nutrition optimization and whole body vibration, as well as low level laser therapy. Patients have access to a wide variety of options to help them return to a life with reduced pain and increased activity.
Is This Procedure Covered By Insurance?
The staff at Cellular Healing is committed to helping you understand the costs associated with stem cell therapy. When comparing costs of covered and uncovered procedures, it is important to understand that many people can use their Health Spending Account (HSA); or, if you participate in a Health Sharing Plan (HSP) such as Medi-share, the costs of these procedures may be covered or partially covered. In addition, when comparing your costs of covered procedures such as joint replacement or physical therapy, please remember to add in the costs of your deductibles and coinsurance and copayments. The average out-of-pocket costs for 2017 was just over $4,000 for the so-called covered procedures. Finally, do not forget to factor in any time off work and lost wages into your total cost of a procedure. Many cell-based therapies allow you to return to full or at least partial work within 24 - 48 hours.
