How much does IVIG cost in North Baltimore, MD?
Is an IVIG infusion right for you?
What diseases can be treated with IVIG infusion?

Intravenous immunoglobulin therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for many patients who have compromised immune systems, often due to an autoimmune disorder. However, this treatment can sometimes be difficult for patients to access due to higher costs and the occasional global shortage of supply. For those who can access this treatment, it is common to achieve significant results, allowing many patients to live much more comfortably and healthily in no time.

How much does IVIG cost in North Baltimore, MD?

Although IVIG therapy can be life-changing for many patients, a significant amount of work and resources go into providing patients with IVIG, making it a more costly treatment option. The process of creating IVIG that is safe and effective for use on patients involves collecting plasma from thousands of donors, manufacturing and testing the product to ensure that it will be both safe and effective, before even supplying it to patients. Aside from just the cost of curating the plasma and preparing the IVIG for patient use, other factors that influence the cost of the treatments include:

• The brand of medication that is being used;
• Where the services are being provided (cost of living);
• The type of health conditions that are being treated;
• The required dosages; and
• Whether the treatment is acute or long-term.

With all of these influencing factors in mind, the average price for IVIG in the United States is around $9,000 per treatment. The cost is determined by how many grams of IVIG are needed for treatment, with most clinics charging around $100 to more than $350 per gram. If patients require weekly treatments, they can expect to spend closer to $40,000 per month on IVIG therapy.

To help manage these costs, patients are encouraged to consult with their health insurance provider to determine if they can receive partial or full coverage for their IVIG therapy costs, as well as to check with their IVIG therapy provider for any patient assistant programs or copay assistance to lessen any financial stress.

Is an IVIG infusion right for you?

IVIG infusions are typically only recommended for patients who are either not able to provide enough antibodies to help them effectively fight off infections, viruses, or other bacteria, or for those who have an autoimmune disease that causes their immune system to attack a certain protein or type of cell within their own body. While IVIG treatments can be a very effective treatment option for many people, it is often recommended for patients who have previously tried other treatment options and have found minimal results, perhaps for those who have found that their autoimmune condition has not been responding to immunosuppressing medications.

IVIG is a very safe treatment option, even being safe for use on most patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding and can be used for both adults and children, but it will not necessarily be effective for everyone, nor will every patient respond well to this course of treatment. There are some minor potential side effects such as a mild fever, headaches, or mild joint aches, with the majority of patients only ever experiencing some of these mild side effects, if they experience any adverse reactions to the treatment at all. If you have previously had a reaction to immunoglobin, or have an intolerance to fruit sugar, IVIG will likely not be a recommended course of treatment for you, with alternative treatment options likely being recommended instead.

What diseases can be treated with IVIG infusion?

IVIG is a very effective treatment option for many patients who suffer from autoimmune diseases as their immune system is significantly weakened or causes them to not develop enough antibodies to effectively fight off diseases. Diseases that are commonly treated or managed through IVIG infusions include:

• Lupus
• Myositis
• Kawasaki disease
• Multiple sclerosis
• Myasthenia gravis
• Guillain-Barre syndrome
• Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis
• Adult-onset Still’s disease
• Vasculitis
• Antiphospholipid syndrome
• Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
• And many other rare diseases

IVIG infusions have also often been provided to patients who have received bone marrow transplants to help reduce their risk of infections. Some patients may also be recommended to receive IVIG infusions alongside other courses of treatment such as biological drugs, immunosuppressants, or corticosteroids, to help manage their immune system disorder.
