Dear Dr. Wheeler,

I think I have low testosterone levels and would like to come in to your office for a visit. I know you have a new patient visit for $99.00. However I would like to know how much the testosterone injections will cost me per month. I am employed only part time and have to stay within my budget. Thank you.

Hi Omar,

Please call us at (425) 455-1700 and we’d be happy to go over all our pricing options. It can be a little confusing because there are so many options so we like to review it in person or over the phone. The cost typically averages $250-$300 per month for the first year and $125-$150 for the second year and that includes all medications, labs, and doctor’s visits. There are different payment options though, including financing, so please give us a call.

Dr. Barry

I spoke to my Health Insurance Provider and I was informed that if I was prescribed Testosterone for health reasons and not sexual reasons that they would cover the cost. How do I know if my need is for health reasons?

Hi Anthony,

That can only be determined by a doctor and would typically involve doing lab testing to check your testosterone levels and discussing your symptoms. Interestingly, one of the symptoms of low testosterone is erectile dysfunction. Other symptoms include low energy, decreased muscle mass, and signs such as osteoporosis. I think what your insurance company is saying is that just because a person may have erectile dysfunction doesn’t mean they automatically need low testosterone treatment.

You may want to clarify further what they mean by sexual reasons as poor sexual performance can be a symptom of low testosterone. Of course, you still need lab testing to check your testosterone levels before your doctor can prescribe testosterone.

Best of luck,
Dr. Barry
