Advanced testosterone therapies often involve prescribing medications that cannot be patented by pharmaceutical manufacturers. Most substances involved in these treatments can be produced by dual-licensed 503B and 503A compounding pharmacies who acquire the FDA-approved active ingredients necessary to manufacture testosterone in a variety of dosage forms.
Using a compounding pharmacy allows our physicians to collaborate with the pharmacy to produce custom drug formulas not commercially available. This includes injectable testosterone esters not available at retail pharmacies, allowing for continued access to a variety of options. Through this process, Defy patients receive uniquely formulated medications that target their specific needs and goals.
We contract medications at wholesale prices, so our patients have access to a full catalog of affordable lifestyle medications while keeping the medication cost lower than many insurance co-pays.
Defy Medical has close relationships with FDA-registered compounding pharmacies, maintaining contracts that guarantee competitive wholesale pricing and cost predictability.
Why use a compounded product when brand name TRT options are often covered by insurance
Why use a product customized by a compounding pharmacy when brand name TRT options are often covered by insurance for men with diagnosed hypogonadism?
Brand name options have many limitations. Most patients report high co-pay cost, limitations on what type of brand an insurance company may be willing to cover, and other restrictions that make it impractical for physicians to prescribe or for patients to afford.
Compounded TRT options can be manufactured with varying concentrations of testosterone and/or blends of different esters, usually at a lower cost than most insurance co-pays. This provides a more targeted treatment, typically at a lower cost.
