is NAD+ IV therapy covered by insurance?

IV therapy, which involves administering fluids, vitamins, and minerals directly into the bloodstream, is becoming increasingly popular among people who want to boost their health and wellness. However, it is important to note that IV therapy is typically not covered by health insurance. This means that individuals who want to receive IV therapy will need to pay for it out of pocket.

Liberty IV has taken a unique approach to price. When people ask if we participate in health insurance programs, we have to respond with a simple "No." The reason for this is to make IV therapy available to everyone at a lower cost. By not having to worry about differing insurance reimbursement rates, they can offer their services at a price that is more affordable to a wider range of people. This is an important consideration, as health insurance does not always result in lower costs for medical care.

NAD+ is a nutrient found in all cells of the human body, which helps in cellular production. Over time, the levels of NAD+ in the body decrease, which results in less efficient cells. IV NAD therapy is a way to restore the energy back into the cells, providing them with everything they need to make energy more effective. This results in increased energy output, mental clarity, muscular endurance, and better neurological health.

NAD+ is used to reset neurotransmitters in cases of addictions and chemical dependencies, such as opioid addiction or benzodiazepines. Specific dosages within the bloodstream for a certain amount of days have different effects on neurological health, as they increase or decrease the dopamine threshold. Decreasing the threshold over time can help people with dopamine desensitization problems, which is a common issue due to constant exposure to social media and screens.

NAD+ is also essential for mitochondrial health, where it acts as a precursor to make more ATP, which helps support and run the mitochondria. IV NAD therapy can flood cells with NAD+ to increase energy output and make cells more efficient. Replenishing NAD+ levels can also help the body produce dopamine for itself, instead of relying on external stimuli. Overall, NAD+ has many benefits and effects, including anti-aging, neurological, and mitochondrial benefits, and can be used to help people with addictions, chemical dependencies, and dopamine desensitization problems.
