MiraDry Costs-Be sure to Ask whether one or two treatments are covered.

+1
MiraDry costs vary from practice to practice but an average price in my area is around $3000 for two treatments. Ask if the price quoted covers two treatments.   Some practices may offer one treatment so the price quoted may be less but doesn't cover both treatments.  Most patients with true hyperhidrosis will need two treatments.  Some patients who are sweat-bothered but don't have hyperhidrosis will benefit from only one treatment.

Miradry is typically not covered by medical insurance. Our office specializes in hyperhidrosis and there are other options for excessive sweating that are covered.

Australian price $3600- application for Medicare rebate underway

+1
miraDry in Australia typically cost $3690, with discounts, may drop to 3200 plus. It is more expensive than the US for several reasons- namely the AUD vs USD, plus the cost of consumables. Also the time and effort it took to undergo TGA Approval increased the price of the machine. 

The flip side? We are undertaking a request for Medicare to partially pay for this procedure, as they do for BOTOX. The down side? This may take a few years. Remember- Australia is usually the last to have any medical procedures approved by our health care system. 

As yet, no medical insurance company covers miraDry in Australia

MiraDry treatments can save you money in the long run.

+1
Two treatments spaced 3 months apart reduce sweating by 89% on average.  This means no more ruining expensive clothing or having to layer clothing to hide the stains.  Treatments cost $3000 for the package and patients are thrilled with the results and their investment in their confidence.

Best to you.

MiraDry is not covered by insurace

+1

Unfortunately, miraDry is not covered by insurance at this time as it is considered a cosmetic procedure.  We are one of the first practices in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area to offer miraDry and have some of the lowest rates in the country for the procedure.  Our cosmetic dermatologists are highly trained in performing the procedure and can perform the procedure in any of our eleven NY and NJ offices.  We typically recommend two miraDry treatments spaced three months apart. For more information and to discuss the cost of the procedure please call one of our offices.

MiraDry is not covered by insurance

+1

Miramar that developed miraDry did not seek insurance codes for this procedure and therefore none exist - this process is expensive and requires a company to submit data to every insurance carrier like Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma City and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Tacoma, Washingon (just giving examples) and every other insurance company in every city - a very expensive proposition costing millions of dollars - and each insurance carrier would have to agree to cover the procedure code for miraDry after they reviewed the procedure - nonsense because the procedure is FDA approved ! Therefore, the company made the decision not to seek the 'medical route' and call it a cosmetic procedure and cosmetic procedures, as you know, are not covered by medical insurance, akin to breast augmentation not being covered or cosmetic rhinoplasty not being covered. Small companies like miraDry cannot afford to play the game that large insurance companies play in determining whether they will cover your procedure or not. It is largely based on cost containment for the insurance company as opposed to doing the right thing for the patient (in most circumstances).
