How Regenexx Procedures Work
Bone Marrow Concentrate
Regenexx-SD is Bone Marrow Concentrate, which contains stem cells. These repair cells from your own body live inside all of us in various tissues, poised to leap into action to repair damage as it occurs. As we age or have big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area. The Regenexx-SD Procedure helps overcome this problem by harvesting Bone Marrow from an area of the back of the hip that contains a dense population of these important cells and then concentrating those cells before precisely injecting them into the injured area using advanced imaging guidance. The goal of the procedure is to reduce pain and improve function by promoting the body's own ability to heal naturally. This Patented Bone Marrow Concentrate Protocol can be used for a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Your Regenexx doctor will evaluate your condition and your imaging to determine whether a bone marrow concentrate or platelet-based treatment is the best option for your orthopedic condition.
Super Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma & Platelet Lysate Procedures
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Lysate are Platelet procedures that contain healing growth factors from your own blood that promote your body’s natural ability to repair itself. The use of PRP to treat joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes. Platelet injections have a stimulating effect on the repair cells within the targeted area, making those cells work harder to perform their natural job of healing the body. Like all Regenexx procedures, Regenexx SCP procedures are performed with high-level imaging guidance to ensure the most accurate placements of cells into the desired area. Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more concentrated and purer than PRP created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics, increasing its ability to stimulate the body's natural healing response. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and around nerves.

Meredith Participant Frequently Asked Questions
Is Regenexx covered by the Meredith medical plans and what will be my out of pocket cost?
Regenexx is a covered benefit on the Meredith medical plans. Your out of pocket cost will depend on (1) your course of treatment, (2) whether you are on Meredith’s Healthy 750 plan or the Healthy Advantage 2600 plan, and (3) your progress toward reaching your deductible and out of pocket max for the calendar year. After an initial evaluation, a Regenexx physician can determine if you are a good candidate for a Regenexx procedure and provide a recommended treatment plan and potential costs.
How do I know if I would be a good candidate for a Regenexx procedure?
Your first step is to have an evaluation at a Regenexx facility. The initial evaluation takes approximately 60 minutes and will consist of a review of your health history and examination of the impacted area(s). If you have a recent MRI, the Regenexx facility may request a copy and/or other medical information/records related to the injury.
The Regenexx physician will provide an analysis of the injured area(s) and a recommended course of treatment. At this time, UMR will be able to provide an estimate on your out of pocket costs based on your recommended Regenexx treatment plan your progress toward reaching your deductible and out of pocket max for the calendar year.
What is my cost for the initial evaluation?
If you are covered by the Healthy 750 plan, at the time of your appointment you will pay a $50 specialist co-pay for the initial evaluation if you have not met your out of pocket max for the calendar year.
If you are covered by the Healthy Advantage 2600 plan, you will receive a bill for the cost of your initial evaluation following the appointment. The cost of your visit will generally be in the $220 – $330 range if you have not already met your deductible for the calendar year.
Beyond the initial evaluation, what other out of pocket expenses can I expect with the Regenexx procedure?
If you are covered by the Healthy 750 plan, you will pay up to your $750 deductible. For covered expenses beyond the deductible, you would then pay 20% of the cost (co-insurance) up to a $3,500 out of pocket max.
If you are covered by the Healthy Advantage 2600 plan, you will pay up to your $2,600 deductible. For covered expenses beyond the deductible, you would then pay 10% of the cost (co-insurance) up to a $3,600 out of pocket max.
