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

MiraDry is a quick in-office procedure that provides a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat. Our office pricing is $2,000 for 1 treatment and an additional $1,000 if a second treatment is needed (about 3 months later in most cases). Unfortunately, miraDry is not covered by medical insurance at this time. We offer free consultations to discuss this treatment and to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Miradry coverage by insurance company

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
MiraDry is indicated for treatment of resistant underarm excessive sweating. Unfortunately, this procedure is not covered by health insurance carriers given fact that there is no CPT code availabe to submit for billing. However, most of my patients with Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account have no difficulty using these pre-tax accounts to pay for medically necessary hyperhidrosis or bromohidrosis (distinct body odor). The out of pocket expense varies from $3000 to $4000 depending on your area but the key is to select a MiraDry physician who can maximize medical therapy for hyperhidrosis as well as one who is competent and committed to take care of uncommon but possible post-treatment complication.

Cost of MiraDry. Is it covered insurance

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
MiraDry is not covered by insurance.  It is a longer lasting compared to Botox for hyperhidrosis  so it is possible that in the future insurance carriers as  a better option because over the long haul it is less expensive than Botox.

it typically costs around $3000 for 2 treatments.  Individual treatments usually are sold for somewhere between $1500 and $2000 if the patient decides to get only a single treatment.

In some cases for severe hyperhidrosis patients have been known to go for a third treatment.

Best of luck

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 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.

Australian price $3600- application for Medicare rebate underway

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 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.

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 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.
