Why Ketamine Treatment May Be an Option for Depression
Ketamine creates millions or billions of new synaptic brain cell connections. It is described as a “brain and nervous system reset” which releases neurotransmitters. This combination helps relieve pain, depression, and suicidal thinking.
What May Be Treated With Ketamine?
If you or someone you know is struggling with:
- severe depression
- suicidal thinking
- severe anxiety
- treatment-resistant depression
- postpartum depression
- bipolar disorder
Ketamine therapy can often provide the fastest relief from those symptoms.

Do Indiana & Kentucky Ketamine Services Take Insurance?
Ketamine services are SOMETIMES paid for by insurance. The clinic has no control over whether or not your insurance will cover ketamine treatments. Insurance companies that approve Ketamine will only cover Nasal Spravato Ketamine for Treatment-Resistant Depression and not the other listed conditions.
At Kentuckiana Ketamine Institute, we are happy to see if your insurance will cover Nasal Spravato Ketamine which is FDA Approved ONLY for TRD-Treatment-Resistant Depression.
Unfortunately, insurance companies will not cover intravenous and intramuscular Ketamine treatment, even though it is generally considered more effective. If your insurance refuses, you will always have the option of paying “out of pocket” for intravenous and intramuscular Ketamine treatment.
What Does Ketamine Therapy Cost & Why Is It So Expensive?
The medication Ketamine is NOT expensive. The training required to administer it safely, the malpractice insurance, and the qualified staff and equipment drive up the cost of Ketamine treatment. While IV intravenous and/or IM intramuscular Ketamine treatments are relatively expensive, with an average price of $350 per treatment. The cost of a single Nasal Ketamine Spravato treatment without insurance is $1,400 on average, so IV and IM Ketamine are more affordable and effective.
Six treatments over two weeks are required for the best results. The least costly treatment program is $2,400 for seven (7) treatments over two weeks.
