Is miraDry® Covered by Insurance?

For patients who are researching and considering miraDry® to treat their axillary hyperhidrosis, there are two primary financial questions that are typically asked: how much does it cost? and is miraDry®covered by insurance?

What is the Cost of miraDry®?

Following an initial complimentary consultation to determine if miraDry® is a suitable treatment for the patient, at WIFH the cost of a first-time miraDry® procedure is $2,650. Results do vary from person to person, however, on average patients achieve a 70% to 90% reduction in sweat and odor production with just one treatment.

Should a patient chose to have a second procedure to achieve further reduction, the cost of a second miraDry® treatment at WIFH is $995.

Is miraDry® Covered by Insurance?

Insurance coverage for miraDry® procedures is entirely dependent on the patient’s individual insurance plan. In our experience at WIFH, miraDry® is not covered by most insurance plans, even with a diagnosis of hyperhidrosis.

At WIFH, we have had many patients successfully use their company’s HSA (Health Savings Account) and FSA (flexible spending account) plans to help pay for their miraDry® procedures. Patients may also finance treatments using Care Credit, a medical finance company offering 12, 18 and 24 month no interest finance plans for those who qualify. Patients may apply by visiting www.carecredit.com or by calling 800.365.8295.
