    Dear Richard,

    Unfortunately, at this time, insurance companies, Medicare and the VA don’t cover treatment. However, we’re hopeful that treatment will be covered by insurance companies, Medicare and the VA in the near future. Keep in mind that it will take some time before the insurance companies see a financial benefit in their favor and then decide to cover it. We’re happy to answer any questions you have regarding stem cell therapy, so feel free to contact us at (855) 313-1149 to speak one-on-one with a patient coordinator. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Best Regards,

    The Lung Institute

    Dear Mikie,

    Thanks for your comment and questions. Treatment cost varies depending on treatment type, and the type of treatment a patient receives is a decision made based on the patient’s medical history. Because each patient is different, it’s important to speak one-on-one with a patient coordinator to discuss all of a patient’s treatment options as well as to answer any questions a patient may have. Our treatments are minimally invasive and outpatient, and we have high quality care standards to ensure patient safety as well. We’re happy to answer any questions you have regarding stem cell treatment, so feel free to contact us at (855) 313-1149. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Kind Regards,

    The Lung Institute
