Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections : Costs
PRP injections attract a Medicare rebate but it is likely that there will still be an out of pocket expense. This 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.
