We continue to work with the administration of Governor Evers seeking full coverage of ketamine infusions specifically for Major Depressive Disorder and Suicidal Ideation. I'm happy to report that, after nearly two years of work, we are finally seeing some movement. Wisconsin Medicaid staff are finally gathering information from other Medicaid programs for which I have provided documents showing that coverage, and I also know that they have scheduled a meeting with an area doctor who has tremendous experience both with ketamine and Spravato. Hope springs eternal!
I know of the following states (plus DC), where Ketamine infusions are specifically covered for this indication:
District of Columbia
And I have reached out to the Medicaid Directors in the other states seeking information on the status of ketamine infusions in their programs.
