Everyone who comes into our office has asked this question at least once, “How much does Hormone Replacement Therapy cost?”. Well, the answer here is that it can vary.
There are some variables in whether or not you have health insurance, what type of therapy you elect to use, and of course, your budget. The following details apply for women seeking hormone replacement therapy, before or after menopause.
First, let’s look at using your health insurance. In our Hormones by Design offices, we do not accept health insurance for the office visit but will gladly use your health insurance for lab work once you are established as a patient. Therefore, the cost for the office visit is usually around $100.
Labs can be sent to your health insurance if you like, or you may pay for them yourself. We have exceptionally low lab prices. You can see all of them at https://hormonesbydesign.com/hbd-labwork-waco/.
Second, you must consider the type of therapy that you choose. The overwhelming majority of our patients choose monthly injection therapy. This is where the patient comes into our office for a lab draw about 3 days before their scheduled appointment, the labs are sent off, and results come back by appointment time.
These lab results are then used to craft a combination of hormones into an injection solely for that patient. For patients that choose injection therapy, the cost per month is included in the office visit, so it is generally only the $100 per month. No matter what therapy you choose, progesterone is almost universally needed for every patient.
This is given orally via a prescription. The cost of a progesterone prescription varies according to each patient’s insurance. Typically, the cost ranges from $20 per month and up.
Lastly, you need to consider your budget. Here at Hormones by Design we will always take your budget into consideration. We don’t ever want a patient to feel that regaining a more youthful quality of life is not attainable due to cost.
There are many ways with which to do hormone replacement. We want to work with you to find the therapy and the price that is sustainable for you. We strive for amazing care at affordable prices.
