Class IV Cold Laser Therapy FAQs and Answers
How much is a cold laser therapy session?
Cold laser therapy may be recommended as part of an overall treatment plan that includes other services (ex. seeing a chiropractor). The cost of a cold laser treatment by itself is $50.00 per session.
The number of sessions recommended is based on the patient’s specific injury and treatment goals. For those needing more laser treatments, cold laser packages are available at $200 for five sessions.
Does cold laser therapy hurt?
Cold laser therapy should not hurt. The treatment should not feel hot or feel like a burning sensation. You should tell your provider immediately if the cold laser treatment is too warm for your comfort level. The therapy is noninvasive. It does not require any chemicals, radioactivity, injections, or incisions.
Is cold laser therapy covered by insurance?
Cold laser therapy is not covered by insurance.
A health savings account (HSA) may be used to pay for lab fees if they are part of medical care, according to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). A patient may also submit a claim to their insurance company for potential partial or full reimbursement of lab work.
We accept Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Savings Accounts (FSAs) to pre-pay these services in advance. We will provide you with all of the required receipts to submit these services. Please note that most HSAs and FSAs will allow you to pre-pay for these services in advance. However, it is the account holder’s responsibility to determine the limitations with their contact person who holds these specific guidelines.
For many other services at our office, we are in-network with various insurance companies. We will run your insurance benefits prior to your first appointment so that you know what is covered before receiving treatment.
What side effects should I expect after a cold laser treatment?
There are no known adverse side effects to receiving a cold laser treatment.
How many cold laser treatments are required to resolve my condition?
Every patient is different. On average, cold laser therapy patients at Loehr Health Center see results between XXX to XXX number of visits. Some patients may be asked to complete “homework” like at-home exercises between cold laser sessions. More severe cases may require more sessions before patients experience greater relief.
Cold laser therapy doesn’t cover the symptoms. It works by healing the injured tissue. For many patients, they see permanent healing results from their cold laser therapy treatments.
