How Much Do Injections Cost?
Prices vary according to your state and also depending on the doctor or clinic performing the procedure. Steroid injections and hyaluronic acid injections for arthritis are almost always covered by insurance. If cortisone or gel injections are not covered by insurance, they can cost between $150 to $300 and $300 to $1,500, respectively. PRP injections range from $500 to $1,500, depending largely on the state. The cost of bone marrow aspirate stem cell procedures varies from $1,500 to $5,000. Finally, culture-expanded stem cell therapy is more expensive because you will have to travel somewhere outside the United States, often Germany or Spain, to get the procedure, and the treatment itself requires post-harvesting stem cell processing. Costs start at $9,000 to $12,000.
