From what I understand, Medicare will not pay for it, although I wouldn't rule out that a pursuasive appeal might work on a case-by-case basis. I think other insurance companies are using Medicare as their source of precedent.

In the US, each treatment costs around $400.

Treatments: 5 times per week; 4 weeks = $8000.
