Australian price $3600- application for Medicare rebate underway
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 is not covered by insurace
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
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).
We price the treatment at $3000 for 2 treatment sessions. It is advised to have 2 treatment sessions because that is where you will see maximum benefits. While a good majority of the sweating is decreased after the 1st session, it really takes that 2nd treatment to get to a solid, sustainable sweat reduction. While I have seen some people try to have insurance cover the procedure, I have not seen that request to be successful. Unfortunately, you will likely have to cover the cost out of pocket.
