How much does a vasectomy cost?

I'm working on picking a health insurance plan, and comparing deductible and and max OOP costs.

We are planning for dh to get a vasectomy this year. He does not currently have a PCP or urologist to ask, so I'm trying to find out about how much one costs.

If you've looked into one or paid for one, can you tell me about how much it cost for the initial appointments, procedure, and follow up?

My dh is also very excited. Insurance starts Oct 1, and he wants to go in THAT day.

I'm thinking I may just do the less expensive plan and put the difference in premiums into the HSA to pay the deductible and copay. It's the $500 difference in deductible that's throwing me...

Re: How much does a vasectomy cost?

dh only had to pay the $40 co pay. I think without insurance it was $1000 or so?

If the deductivle is throwing you then I would just calculate out what each plan costs by taking the monthly premium x 12 months and the cost of a ded/copay for both plans - which ever is cheaper/more cost effective we choose. This year we picked the high deductible plan knowing the change of premiums and my DH would be switching jobs. Last year we had the low deductable know that we would meet it either way (high/low) and this plan saved us last year. KWIM?

Re: How much does a vasectomy cost?

You don't have to be a patient to call up a couple of urologists and just ask a out the costs. They should be able to give you some ideas. Just explain that your insurance won't pick up anything before the deductible is satisfied so you are trying to get an idea of how much to save for it.
