Will insurance cover testosterone replacement treatment?
Insurance coverage is a worry for everyone. But it doesn’t have to be. Testosterone replacement therapy can be covered by your insurance carrier and we would love to help you find out if you are covered.
In some instances of low testosterone levels, most insurance will cover replacement therapy. For most insurance carriers, coverage for testosterone replacement treatments depends on the level of testosterone in your system. Finding this can be as easy as taking a small blood sample.
We will run a simple blood test showing your testosterone levels, this is best when done in the morning. Insurance companies understand that hormone levels peak at certain times of the day. And most insurance companies will cover replacement therapy when you qualify for low levels in the morning. With two separate blood tests, done on different days, you will most likely be covered if your levels are below 350ng/dL – depending on your insurance company.

According to Harvard Health, normal levels of testosterone in men is between 300-1,000ng/dL, most insurance companies will cover your testosterone replacement therapy treatments with a low testosterone level of 350ng/dL with two separate blood tests done usually in the morning.
Here at Oregon Man Clinic we can schedule your testosterone screenings as well as work with you to see if your insurance company will cover your testosterone replacements treatments. Even if your insurance company does not cover your treatments, we can work with you on cash payments; most men find the related benefits to far outweigh the financial cost of testosterone replacement treatment.
