How much does a vasectomy cost without insurance?

I am a veteran who is covered by the VA. However, the VA does not cover vasectomies, so I'd have to pay for the procedure out-of-pocket. How much does a vasectomy cost?

It should cost the same amount it would be if you had insurance. If the price given far exceeds this, in my humble opinion, you should shop around for a fairer "self-pay" price. Any urological office has a person who knows this insurance number or it can be found on the web.

The cost can vary from $700-$1000. Most fees cover the initial visit, the procedure, and the follow-up semen examinations. Be sure to ask the doctor or the office what is included in the fee as you don't want any surprises.

It varies greatly around the country. I have seen as little as $200 and as much as $1200. I would recommend calling 4 or 5 urology practices in your area and ask for the self-pay price and if there are discounts.
