Insurance Coverage for Testosterone Replacement Therapy
at NexGen Health and Wellness
Low testosterone got you singing the blues? Did you know depression is a side effect of low testosterone? There are also many physical issues that present themselves when a person has low testosterone. Fortunately, determining if your testosterone levels are low simply requires a blood test. NexGen Health and Wellness is here to guide you as you navigate Testosterone Replacement Therapy. We can even help determine if your health insurance will cover the therapy.
Testosterone is the hormone produced from male reproductive organs. When your testosterone levels are abnormally low for your age, an array of negative issues that could take place are:
- Loss of bone density
- Weight gain (particularly in the abdomen)
- Low muscle mass and strength
- Decreased strength in erections
- Low Libido
- Lack of concentration
- Daytime sleepiness
- Low endurance
- Joint pain
- Lack of motivation
Testosterone naturally tapers off after the age of 30, but other factors can cause your testosterone levels to drop. Injury, chronic health conditions, cancer treatments, dysfunction of the pituitary gland, and even stress can produce low levels. The patient could also have a condition known as hypogonadism. Hypogonadism is a condition where the reproductive organs do not function properly causing low production of testosterone for men and low production of estrogen in women. Usually, a man’s testosterone levels range between 300-1000 nanograms per deciliter and a level lower than the 350 ng/dl usually indicates low testosterone. Once your blood test is complete, and if it is determined your testosterone levels are low, the medical professionals of NexGen Health and Wellness will begin to develop your Testosterone Replacement Therapy regimen. Our medical professionals take the time to monitor and adjust your levels to have you feeling your best. Once your testosterone is replaced, you will quickly see the results. However, once it is determined that you have low testosterone and then start treatment, you will always need testosterone replacement in order to keep the testosterone levels up. We will have you feeling reinvigorated, rejuvenated, and restored!
Certain insurance providers need a specific level number to cover Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Usually, if your level is 350 ng/dl or lower, insurance will cover the price of TRT therapy ( but note that all plans are not the same). Rest assured though, at NexGen Health and Wellness, analyzing your insurance and getting you covered for this life-changing therapy is important to us.
