How Much Does Our In The Home Lice Removal Service Cost?
LiceDoctors charges $125 for the first hour and $100 for each additional hour. Our prices to check and treat the family are among the lowest in the industry. We do NOT charge per head, which can easily cost $600 and up per family. If a company quotes a lower hourly rate, find out how long it takes to check a person’s head; less experienced service providers may take several hours per head. We are trained to treat the family in an efficient manner so that it does not take us several hours per person. The average time spent with a family is 3 hours. Remember we back up our treatment with a 100% guarantee.
* prices may vary in New York and Connecticut.
At LiceDoctors we have a one hour minimum; if it takes us longer to eradicate your family’s head lice you will be charged $25 per 15 minute increments. In addition, we offer you the option to purchase the Terminator lice removal comb for home follow-up at $20. There is a travel charge of $50 if you are located within 40 miles and $65 and up if you are 40 miles or more.
We accept all major credit cards. Most Flex Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts cover lice treatment service. Lice removal service is not covered under medical insurance plans. There is a $75 cancellation fee if you cancel within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment.
Costs of Do-It-Yourself Treatments-Monetary, Emotional, and Physical
Keep in mind that there is cost involved with any lice treatment that you do. In fact, going the do-it-yourself route often ends up being more expensive than using LiceDoctors. Why is that?
Consider the monetary costs of the following:
- Over-the counter head lice treatment kits that often do not work
- Visits to the doctors’ office/prescription shampoos that may not work
- Days of missed work and school
- Loads and loads of laundry and dry cleaning
- Needlessly thrown away combs and other hair accessories
And, of course, there are the emotional and physical costs of do-it-yourself treatments:
- Hours spent in vain combing and treating and picking only to find out a few days later that there are still nits in the hair
- The frustration of mom or dad not being able to see what is in your own hair
- Restless, crying, and/or frustrated children who endure picking and pulling at their hair
- Long term effects of toxic ingredients??
- The discomfort of Itchy scalps
- Back aches from constant vacuuming and doing loads of wash
- The biggest toll of all are the emotional ones which include but are not limited to frustration, anger, humiliation, guilt, worry, stress; all of which can be alleviated by a short visit from LiceDoctors
