KWC will serve more patients than any other ketamine therapy provider with addition of Medicare, cements status as nation's largest ketamine clinic network in the U.S.
Medicare coverage will be available for patients in eight cities with more to come
GILBERT, Ariz., Sept. 29, 2022 /CNW/ - Ketamine Wellness Centers (KWC), the largest ketamine therapy provider in the U.S. and a subsidiary of Delic Holdings Corp ("Delic" or the "Company") (CSE: DELC) (OTCQB: DELCF) (FRA: 6X0), has become one of a few ketamine therapy providers in the U.S. to offer Medicare coverage to patients at eight KWC clinics across the country — Chicago, Denver, Houston, Jacksonville, Minneapolis, Tucson, Salt Lake City and Seattle.
KWC is currently one of a handful of clinics in the country to accept any major insurance plans. Under Medicare, KWC is accepting a limited number of patients for ketamine infusion therapy at the eight clinics and the FDA-approved SPRAVATO® esketamine treatment at the Houston, Jacksonville and Seattle locations if they meet the criteria for insurance coverage. The coverage will also be dependent on their individual plan.
Patients navigating the complexities of healthcare coverage will have access to the company's experienced team of insurance experts who will assist as Medicare coverage is introduced.
"At Ketamine Wellness Centers it has been our mission from day one to make these life-changing therapies more accessible and affordable, which is why we are very focused on securing major insurers such as Medicare," said Kevin Nicholson, CEO of Delic and KWC. "Many insurance organizations around the country continue to classify ketamine as 'experimental' allowing them to resist covering patients of many other ketamine clinics who, unlike KWC, do not have specialized in-house insurance teams. This has left tens of millions of Americans to suffer needlessly, and often dangerously, from mental health conditions and pain with no access to affordable effective treatments. KWC's introduction of Medicare and other major insurance plan coverage overcomes a huge obstacle to the majority of mental health and pain patients previously forced to forego this safe, effective treatment because they cannot afford to pay out of pocket. Our team is working hard to bring Medicare and other insurance coverage to the rest of our clinics across the country so more people can access the quality care they need."
