Vasectomy is one of the most reliable methods of birth control. It is nearly 100% successful at preventing pregnancy, and far less expensive than female sterilization (tubal ligation). You might be considering a vasectomy because you do not want to have children, or you are done having them. Depending on how you intend to pay, which procedure you choose, and any insurance you may use, vasectomy cost can vary wildly.
Types of Vasectomy
To determine a vasectomy cost, you need to know what type of vasectomy you will be getting. Both types are safe and with minimal risk of complications. They include:
No-Scalpel Vasectomy: The vas deferens are ducts which carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra to mix with semen. The doctor holds them with a clamp from outside the scrotum. The doctor then uses a needle to make a small hole to access the ducts. Due to its simplicity, it is our preferred method of vasectomy. Register for your next visit here.
Incision Vasectomy: The doctor makes an incision on each side of the scrotum in order to reach the vas deferens. These cuts result in more pain and bleeding.
Vasectomy Cost With Insurance
Vasectomies are quick procedures and aren’t very expensive. Most health insurance policies will cover a vasectomy, so be sure to contact your insurance company to discuss your coverage. The insurance company will usually pay the majority of vasectomy costs.
If you find that your insurance does not cover your vasectomy cost, you may want to utilise a health savings account (HSA). Your HSA contributions may be able to get reimbursed.
Vasectomy Cost Without Insurance
If you don’t have health insurance, a vasectomy may require up-front payment. Out of pocket, the average cost of a vasectomy is about $1,000. Because of this, it shouldn’t take too long to put aside the amount needed. Some doctors are willing to provide discounts to those who pay their vasectomy cost in advance of their procedure.
