…what price would you place on your health and well-being?
You’re low, slow, and stressed out.
You think you’re suffering from low testosterone, and you’re worried about what’s next.
Coming to terms with, identifying, and then treating the signs of low testosterone can feel overwhelming at the best of times, let alone worrying about whether you’ll be able to afford the out-of-pocket expenses.
Thankfully, the choice between your bank balance and recovery isn’t one you need to make…
So, What’s The Cost?
The true cost of treatment varies from case to case, largely depending on the severity of your symptoms, the type, dosage, and the longevity of treatment required, as well as whether your insurance will cover some or all of your lab and prescription costs.
As testosterone replacement therapy treatments are often a long-term commitment, it’s important to know just what you’re signing up for – and how much you’ll be paying – before you proceed.
In most cases, treatment costs can be broken down to:
Blood And Lab Work
Quality hormone specialists specialize their treatments to your exact needs, so you’ll need to undergo a range of blood tests. These can cost upwards of $1,500 without financial help from your insurer.
At Genesys Men’s Health, we believe that price should be a factor – but not a deciding one – when determining whether you’ll undergo treatment. That’s why if you’re without insurance, or have high deductible plans, you can take advantage of our discounted lab services at $329.
This will allow us to determine both the severity of your symptoms, and the specifics of your treatment.
We also go that extra mile with a FREE Online Testosterone Self Test, followed by a free in-office evaluation with one of our hormone doctors (normally $150). From there, we will schedule a 45 minute, in-depth evaluation of your labs for just $75 (usually $150).

Following the evaluation of your labs, your hormone specialist will present you with a customized treatment plan. If you choose to move forward with treatment, yearly program fees will be due which can range from $1200 to $1750 for the first year, with fees dropping to $500 per year thereafter.
Many other hormone facilities will charge a monthly fee of $150 to $250 per month ($1800 to $3000 per year). While our yearly fee will decrease significantly after the first year, these other hormone services will continue to charge the same fee month after month, and year after year.
If you lack the requisite health coverage, prescription hormones alone can cost anywhere between $25 to $70 per month.
A more accurate estimate depends on the treatment administered including the method of testosterone treatment, as well as the need for estrogen blockers, hCG/clomid treatment, thyroid and adrenal treatment.
Keep in mind that we do work with local compounding pharmacies and can get you significant discounts.

Adding It All Up
Combining the cost of medications, labs, as well as medical services and supplements, it’s not uncommon for treatment to average anywhere between $1,650 to $3,200 for the first year and from $600 to $1500 every year thereafter. This cost will depend on the extent of insurance prescription coverage as well as which prescriptions are required.
That said, these costs should fall over time. The initial outlay is often higher, as the amount of lab work and consultations required to track the root cause of your symptoms, and then tailor a plan to suit, are time-intensive tasks.
Will Insurance Cover My Testosterone Treatments?
The large majority of insurance providers will often cover most, and in some cases all, of the ongoing prescriptions costs. They may also cover additional expenses, including blood tests and lab work.
In the case that insurance will not cover labs or prescription hormones, we can arrange for huge cash discounts. That said, it’s always best to consult with your insurer to see just how much you’ll be paying, and how much they’re likely to cover.
Your Health Is A Wise Investment
Ultimately, your decision will depend on your personal circumstances, and what you’re realistically able to afford. More often than not, there’s an option out there that will fit your budget.
Keep in mind that the potential future costs involved in treating other ailments or illnesses that arise as a result of hormonal imbalances such as chronic fatigue, depression, or a low sex drive can often cost much, much more.
Ask yourself, can you really put a price on your happiness and well-being?
