No, they don't.
I think Low T Centers and Ageless Men take insurance but they make you go to the clinic once per week for a shot so that they can charge your insurance.

I just tested low for testosterone and have an appointment with an endocrinologist in a couple of weeks. My concern is he is about 70 years old, and I want to try TRT. Has anyone had issues going this route with an older doc?

Heck, the best doctor for TRT in the world is Dr Eugene Shippen in PA and he is old.
Ask the doc his opinion about HCG and anastrozole. If he says he does not prescribe them, you will know he is not very progressive.

Here are some good questions for your first visit:
Questions to ask a doctor/clinic administrator about testosterone treatment:
How many men does he/she treat for hypogonadism?
Does he/she offer HCG therapy, in addition to testosterone for testicular atrophy? (Many doctors do not know how to use HCG.)
Does he/she use Arimidex (generic: anastrozole) to keep estrogen down in case of gynecomastia (enlarged breasts) or other high estradiol related issues?
Do they provide other therapies that can complement testosterone replacement?
Does he/she allow patients to self-inject at home?
Does he/she work with any compounding pharmacies to access cheaper and customized hormonal products? (Some doctors worry compounding pharmacies have poor quality control)
How many times do you have to go see him or her?
Do they share blood work results with you?
What is the set-up lab/doctor fee and approximate drug costs per month?

If it doesn't workout with your endo, find a compounding pharmacy in your area and tell them you're trying to find a good TRT dr and ask them dr's than prescribe the most test.
Also HCG is not a must for TRT. I've heard of more guys having problems with it than it helping. I've been on TRT for 2 1/2 years and haven't taken HCG. It can make managing your E2 levels really tough.

I love HCG. It boosts my sex drive, mood and sperm on TRT. I inject HCG + T in the same 27 gauge 1/2 inch syringe on shoulders or guads.
