Potential patients often ask, “How much does bioidentical hormone therapy cost?” Bioidentical hormone therapy combined with a comprehensive, tailored treatment plan averages $250-$500 per month. The cost varies per patient based on the required lab testing, eligibility of insurance coverage, necessary follow-up appointments, prescriptions, and supplements.
The average cost for prescriptions ranges from $45-$150 per month per prescription. However, some patients opt for pellet therapy as opposed to traditional delivery methods, such as creams, gels, patches, and pills. Pellet therapy ranges from $195-$350 per insertion, however pellets last between 3 and 5 months, depending on the rate at which your body metabolizes the pellet.
Initial costs will be higher than the monthly average, as the initial lab panels are the most comprehensive, assessing more than 50 health markers for identification and thorough assessment of your body’s function and the root cause of your symptoms. Your initial consultation with your physician is a one-hour consultation—sometimes more—to review your symptoms, medical history, lab results, current lifestyle, health goals, and personal struggles since your symptoms began.
