How Much is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

So you are looking into the cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Congratulations! You are a very smart person. HBOT is one of the best investments you can make in your health. The price of hyperbaric oxygen therapy varies greatly from place to place and depending on equipment. This article is going to make you a smart shopper and equip you to choose wisely in purchasing hyperbaric oxygen therapy. In fact what I’m about to share many HBOT facilities do not want me to share! The price range is large from under a hundred all the way up to 600 dollars.

The Cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

There are only 2 basic types of hyperbaric chambers: Hard and Soft.

Hard chambers are well, hard! They are made of steel. They come in different sizes some are really big for lots of people and others are made for just one person. These chambers are very expensive, capable of all kinds of treatments and deliver the greatest levels of oxygen.

All FDA approved hard chambers are equally good. Whether the chamber is in a hospital or office it delivers exactly the same treatment.

Soft chambers are like a balloon with a zipper. They are smaller then any hard chamber and only capable of low pressures that means they have a limited benefit. Technically a soft chamber is not real hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

For more information on the differences this article has all the details: Which is best hard vs soft chambers for optimal healing.

The point here is that you should pay a lot less for a soft chamber treatment vs a hard chamber. One hour in hard chamber is equal to 20 to 40 hours in a soft chamber.

The first decision for the hyperbaric oxygen shopper is are they looking for a hard or soft chamber treatment. Price these treatments accordingly.

The Price of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy | Hospitals

The most expensive HBOT treatments are going to be in hospitals. Were talking a lot more expensive. The only reason to get this therapy in a hospital is if you are in the hospital due to a life threating problem like:

  • Severe anemia
  • Brain abscess
  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels, known as arterial gas embolism
  • Burns
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crushing injury
  • Gangrene
  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death

When deciding on where to get HBOT, the selection of the chamber is just one piece of the puzzle. Various other factors come into play, including location, the expertise of the medical professionals overseeing the therapy, insurance and additional services offered by the facility.

Is HBOT covered by insurance?

Insurance coverage is another aspect to consider. While some insurance plans may cover HBOT for certain approved conditions, most do not. Furthermore, it’s crucial to check with your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage and any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur.

Will you see a doctor at the office?

Just because an office has a hyperbaric chamber does not mean that there is a doctor treating patients. Regardless of the reason you are looking into getting hyperbaric therapy wouldn’t it be nice to talk to a doctor about it? A physician will know important things like how many treatments are needed, what pressure in the chamber is the best for you and how long the treatments need to be. More then that, having a doctor to help you with whatever your health concern is can be a huge. I’ve met with patients who think hyperbaric oxygen therapy is what they need and I’ve talked them out of it because I knew that HBOT was not going to accomplish what they wanted and that there were better treatments.

Is the staff qualified? A reliable and excellent HBOT staff is defined by a team of experienced professionals, including hyperbaric technicians, nurses, and physicians. Clear communication, patient-centered care, and a commitment to safety contribute to their effectiveness. This dedicated team ensures a positive and personalized experience for patients, fostering an environment conducive to the optimal benefits of HBOT.
