How much does a vasectomy and a reversal cost?
When considering birth control methods, cost is also a factor. Some methods of birth control are more costly than others. These include: tubal ligation or hysterectomy for women and long-term prescription birth control pills.
Generally speaking, the cost of a vasectomy is usually between $500 and $1,000, depending on where you are and what type of procedure is completed. Your health insurance may actually cover part or all of this procedure.
Conversely, a vasectomy reversal is more expensive, since it requires more time and skill. The average cost of vasectomy reversal is between $5,000 and $13,000, depending on your location and procedure. Though this is a significant sum of money, and it is considered an elective procedure (which means your insurance policy may not cover this procedure) - it is less costly than in-vitro or in utero fertilization, which would be required if a reversal is not performed, and children are desired.
Talk to your physician about vasectomy and vasectomy reversal to find out the costs in your area.
