How much does Stem Cell Therapy Cost?

At North East Joint and Wellness, we take great pride in the diversity of services we provide. While we will always strive to provide a well-rounded approach to healthcare, we are honored to provide regenerative medicine services as well. Regenerative medicine is one of the frontiers of medicine in 2021. The goal of regenerative medicine is to encourage the body to regenerate itself naturally. Instead of replacing damaged tissue with scar tissue, regenerative medicine treatments seek to replace damaged tissue with new, native tissue. This will help someone restore his or her functional capacity.

We know that the price of regenerative treatments, such as stem cell therapy treatment, are among the most common patient concerns. We are here to address them.

What are the Costs of Stem Cell Therapy?

doctor showing patients medical paperwork The price of stem cell therapy is going to vary based on a number of factors. Some of the factors that are going to play a role in the costs of stem cell therapy include:

  • How many stem cell therapy treatments someone is going to need (most people get one treatment; however, some people might end up with multiple treatments)
  • The location of the injection on the body (it may change the tools or equipment required)
  • The presence or absence of health insurance that might cover the cost of a stem cell therapy treatment
  • Where the treatment is administered (the price may vary by geographic location)

While it is hard to estimate the cost of stem cell therapy treatment, most treatments are going to cost a few thousand dollars. 

Why is Regenerative Medicine So Expensive?

This is one of the most common questions we hear. Even though it is 2021, there is still a shortage of supplies when it comes to the treatment options offered by a regenerative medicine practice. It can be hard to collect the stem cells that are used in our procedures. It is also hard to procure plasma for PRP therapy. Furthermore, once these supplies are procured, they are used very quickly. The costs of keeping them preserved can also be high. This drives up the cost of regenerative medicine treatment.

Are There Financing Options for Stem Cell Therapy?

Yes. We provide financing options for Stem Cell Therapy through United Medical Credit. If you want to lower payments over a longer time, this is a great option for you. You can apply here.

Does Health Insurance Cover Stem Cell Therapy?

Health insurance coverage can be a great way to save money on stem cell therapy; however, not every health insurance plan is going to cover stem cell or PRP therapy. It is best for people to read their insurance plans and, if they have questions, reach out to their health insurance provider.

What are the Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy?

medical papers There are significant benefits that can accompany stem cell therapy. Typically, following an injury, the body will replace damaged tissue with scar tissue. Sadly, scar tissue does not function in the same way as healthy, native tissue. As a result, people will feel stiff and sore. They might not regain the full use of the injured body part.

Stem cell therapy seeks to change this. Stem cells are young cells that have not yet differentiated into their final forms. As a result, stem cells can become native tissues, replacing the damaged cell with healthy, functioning cells. In this fashion, stem cell therapy can help someone restore an injured body part to full health. This is what makes stem cell therapy so powerful in 2021.
