What’s the Cost of TRT at Defy Medical?

Apr 1, 2021

What’s the Cost of TRT at Defy Medical?

An estimated 40% of men have low Testosterone by the time they’re 45 or older.

Younger men are also increasingly experiencing low T because of health, lifestyle, and environmental factors.

Read on to learn more about TRT and the costs associated with it.

The Cost of TRT at Defy Medical

Every patient’s physiology is unique, so a quality TRT plan should be individualized. You may also require supplemental medication to help you feel your best.

Because your TRT protocol can vary, prices will vary as well.

Before we dive into Defy Medical's cost, here are a few things to know about TRT in general:

  • Traditional Primary Care Physicians or Urologists often lack expertise in TRT. In addition, they may not have time to treat TRT patients due to the depth of care needed.

  • Some clinics offer a cookie-cutter TRT program for a flat monthly fee, but often these plans aren’t individualized enough to be effective. These clinics also might not have access to the range of supplemental medications or therapies for best results.

  • The best TRT plan:
    1. Considers your overall health and hormone levels (measured through blood testing).
    2. Takes into account your needs and goals.
    3. Follows up regularly to keep you on track.

  • Defy Medical offers care with no subscriptions or contracts. That way, our patients pay for exactly what they need – and nothing they don’t.

So, what does TRT cost at Defy Medical?

While every protocol is different and Defy Medical doesn’t charge a subscription fee:

Defy Medical's cost for a male TRT patient on a Testosterone protocol that includes supplemental medication averages out to under $200 per month for the first year, and around $150 per month after that. This includes medications, lab work, and consultations.*

No monthly fees – plus financing options available. Defy Medical simply charges patients for the services and medications they need when they need them. We also offer access to financing for qualified patients if that works better for your budget.

Does insurance cover TRT?

You may be wondering if you can pursue TRT options with your healthcare insurance. 

Unfortunately, TRT and low T are often misunderstood and seldom covered by insurance.

Many traditional healthcare providers don’t consider men with significant low T symptoms to be candidates for TRT – even if blood testing shows lower levels. In fact, traditional providers sometimes require at least two blood test results showing low Testosterone prior to prescribing, and the window of what’s considered low is typically too narrow.

Many times, patients have to jump through hoops to even have Testosterone prescribed.

Insurance providers have a similarly narrow view of TRT. The majority of insurance providers will not cover the costs of a comprehensive TRT protocol because it is often not deemed essential.

If your provider does prescribe TRT and your insurance will cover it, the protocol likely won’t be individualized enough to replenish your low T levels.

It probably also won’t include ancillary medications like aromatase inhibitors (medications that slow the production of estrogen) which many patients require to feel their best.

This has been the experience of many Defy Medical patients who try a traditional health care provider and insurance prior to switching their care to us.

Defy Medical offers individualized protocols created by experts in Men’s Health, and we help our patients access a wide range of TRT options for greater customization.
