Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections : Costs
Due to changes in legislation, PRP Injections no longer attract a Medicare rebate. The fee can vary considerably depending on factors such as the expertise and experience of your doctor, whether ultrasound guidance is used when injecting, and in particular what type of method or system is used for harvesting of the PRP. There is a great variation in methods. Ideally, you should seek treatment from a doctor who is experienced in the regular use of PRP injections as well as the continued overall management of your injury including rehabilitation.
You should discuss the costs of PRP with your practitioner at the time of consultation.
If you are a Workcover or Third Party Insurance patient, then written approval will need to be sought from your insurer to cover the costs.
