    What brand do you get from your pharm?

    I just picked up my 1st legit prescribed from a Rite Aid and was surprised to see it is Cyp by Sandoz made in Canada.

    All this time I was buying from Walgreens
    Depo-Testosterone
    Testosterone cypionate
    200mg/mL
    Pharmacia & Upjohn Co
    division of Pfizer

    Paid $150/10mL vial
    --------------------------------------

    Now, since my prescription plan decided to cover it
    I am getting as many as I want, in my mail box

    Testosterone Cypionate
    200 mg/mL
    Watson Lab (Phoenix Az USA)
    A subsidiary of Watson Pharma Inc
    Corona CA USA

    $30 for two 10mL vials
    ----------------------------------------

    To contrast the above,
    my prescription plan limits my Cialis.

    If I re-order even one day earlier then they think I should
    they cancel my script

    I stopped making attempts at looking for a basic logic.
    Just go with the flow.
    -------------------------------------------

    Not sure what is your cash flow
    regardless, better to save it and buy more gas and get Striped bass

    but
    I know of compounding pharmacy that at one time was selling

    30mL vials of 200mg/mL
    testosterone cypionate for $100

    and 10mL vials for $40

    I forgot the type of oil they used

    Our is cottonseed

    compounded IIRC is sesame oil (I think)

    Thanks JanSz.

    Def needmy casflow now, especially for fishing.

    My plan covers my test and my copay is $15 for 10ml of 200mg/ml.

    Won't cover my Cialis tho, but found that cheap anyway.
    Pharm wanted $150 for 10- 10mg Cialis.

    No thanks.

    I get mine from Costco pharmacy. 50 dollars for a 2000mg (10cc bottle of Test C (Watson) )

    ANother question for you all...does insurance cover it ? I was told NO...so automatically assumed that and never tried getting insurance to cover it. I have Humana POS. Someone told me that the doctor has to write "medically necessary" on the script. But why give a prescription in the 1st place if it's NOT medically necessary. Anyone ?

    As I said, my cost is $10 for the co-pay and the insurance pays the rest (10 ml 200 mg/ml). I think there was a deductible I had to meet for the first couple of scripts that made the first ones higher. Why would a physician write a prescription that wasn't "medically necessary"?

    Interesting that you guys bring that up.
    Here's the deal, I recently was prescribed HCG for low test and he stated that he was not sure if my insurance covered it. After running around with the insurance co, the finally sent my prescription to me via mail and placed my credit card on file for the pending charges. Several weeks go by and I still have no charge on my card so I call them back.
    The rep tells me that my prescription is listed as "medically necessary" and it is 100% covered by my insurace. There's not even a co-pay and I assume that there would be no difference with a script for actual Test.

    I never even heard of this but I verified it twice!
    My perception of this is that a lot depends on your insurance and how the doc words the script.

    Never assume. I hope it works out for you, and there are guys way more knowledgeable than me who might have more info, but Im surprised since I thought as a dude, hcg was an "off label" use, and would never be covered by insurance. Also, re-read whats been posted about the freaky things that aren't covered, Ive got a friend who got androgel and only paid a real small copay(its like 200+ bucks without ins) but inj. test is not covered at all, so its all out of pocket. (all medically necessary, no quacks or online stuff, regular do doc). Go figure.

    arimidex is very expensive I paid $11 a mg a while ago, drug companies smell blood when a drug can be used for cancer.

    Easy, have you been able to get compounded test, etc covered by your insurance? I've yet to try, I've heard it can be near impossible.

    On a side note, arimidex is way too expensive, it's the most expensive part of my HRT. I buy liquidex and use this along with my compounded .5mg caps of arimidex to make it last longer.

    Blue Cross will not cover T for me, I have tried. My general rule is, if it works insurance will not pay. If one of the side effects is death insurance is happy to give you all you want.

    I actually haven't tried to get my insurance to cover it, cause from all i've seen its pointless. at best it seems they'd let me apply the amount I spent towards annual deductibles.

    So If I wanted to do this I need to find a Doctor that is into this, or does it just go by your hormone levels?

    I just found a guy in my area and this is expensive. Any cheaper way?

    from his website.



    Costs Associated With the Vital Life Longevity Program

    It is expected that most people will keep their family physician. This is important because we are not diagnosing or treating you for any disease. We are doing health enhancement and proactive prevention.

    Fees for patients doing the Vital Life Program:

    First year professional fees, Dr Lang: $900.00

    This includes my initial consults, prescription writing, lab consults, and all follow ups in our office or on the phone. I encourage you to follow up with me as often as needed; sometimes, especially at the beginning of the program, that may mean a few times a month.

    Your additional costs will include blood draws, all lab work, and all prescription and non prescription supplements, hormones, and medications.

    Second year and ongoing professional fee: $300.00 per year

    Your additional costs will include blood draws, all labwork, and all prescription and non prescription supplements, hormones, and medications.

    Approximate laboratory testing costs:

    First round lab testing: approximately $340.00 for comprehensive hormone urine testing and $200.00 for blood testing, including cbc, chemscreen, Growth Hormone levels, and thyroid function with Free T3.

    Secondary, tertiary testing: $280 for comprehensive hormone testing done within that first year; $100 for blood testing of Growth Hormone levels and Free T3 (thyroid).

    Hormone Costs:

    All hormones except Growth Hormone: approximately $150/month; this would be for Thyroid, DHEA, Pregnenolone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, Melatonin.

    Growth Hormone: approximately $300 per month.

    My previous two insurance companies UHC and BlueCross both state in their exemption clauses that they do not cover compounded pharmacy prescription. Save your receipt and write it off on your taxes for medical expenses.
