Infusion therapy is proven effective in managing many autoimmune conditions, chronic pain, and other types of deficiencies or illnesses. Choosing the right infusion center for your needs is one of the first and most important decisions you’ll make as you manage your health long-term.
With so many options, where do you begin? Let’s go over some factors to consider when choosing an infusion center in Connecticut.
#1: Medication Options
The most important part of your decision in choosing an infusion center in Connecticut is learning about the infusion medications and therapy options available.
You’ll first want to confirm with your referring provider which options may work for you and receive a doctor’s order. Once you know the medication your doctor is prescribing, research whether or not it’s available at each center on your list.

#2: Easy Scheduling
The process for scheduling Infusion therapy appointments should feel simple and streamlined. Before making an appointment, ask about facility hours as well as the process for scheduling, canceling, or changing an appointment.
As you discuss scheduling options, consider whether the facility is close enough to your home or office and aligns with travel preferences. Next, ensure appointments are available to accommodate your schedule so you’re able to adhere to your treatment program.
Scheduling an appointment at PACT Infusion Center—centrally located near major Connecticut highways— is simple. You can call (203) 281-5114 to ask questions about scheduling processes and how to make an appointment.
#3: Comfortable Environment
Having an infusion center that offers a comfortable environment can help ease your mind and body during treatment. Do you prefer a quiet space for reading or relaxing? Would WiFi access or streaming services offer you a more positive experience?
As you research, learn about the accommodations that are available for patients and envision what it might be like to receive treatment there.
PACT Infusion Center offers comfortable, fully reclining chairs in a dedicated stand-alone facility. Our patients also have access to free, on-site parking, Broadband WiFi internet access, Netflix, and television.
#4: Clinical Expertise
Establishing care at an infusion center requires placing trust in those who will be coordinating and administering your treatment. As you research infusion centers, ensure a well-established tenure in infusion medication and therapy. Don’t hesitate to ask about staff turnaround, experience, and whether or not each center is up-to-date on the latest infusion therapy techniques.
At PACT Infusion Center, we have more than 20 years of experience in infusing biologics. We employ three full-time, licensed registered nurses who administer care to patients. We also coordinate closely with referring providers and on-site physicians who can offer medical guidance if necessary.
While in-home administration of medication may be convenient, receiving infusion therapy at a certified infusion center offers an unmatched level of safety and care.
Adverse reactions to infusion therapies are rare. However, opting to receive infusion therapy in a controlled setting— with access to experienced medical staff on-site— is often a safer way to navigate treatment.
At PACT Infusion Center, our nurses are trained in what to expect and what to look out for during infusion therapy. There is always a physician on site as patients receive infusions, and trusted medical practitioners are never far away should a question or concern arise during treatment.
#6: Accepted Insurance
Scheduling care at an infusion center without knowing if your insurance is accepted may result in unexpected, expensive medical bills. Make sure to check with each facility you’re considering before making an appointment. Ask for specific details on any co-payments and whether or not treatment is covered under your insurance plan. If an infusion center you’re interested in is not within your insurance network, ask for a cost estimate of desired treatment before moving forward with therapy.
PACT Infusion Center accepts all major insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid. Our pre-authorization specialist can help assess medication needs and connect with insurance companies to obtain pre-authorization approval.
