Keep calling: Since ketamine infusions are considered ‘experimental’ by insurance companies, you would be required to pay for infusions. While 30k sounds very high, I wonder if it includes multiple treatments. Get other cost estimates, but compare what you are buying. Typical,infusions are by an anesthesiologist while you are connected to monitoring equipment for safety. We had good success for our patients.
