Time released bioidentical hormone pellets have become a popular and successful option for many women suffering from menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, sleeplessness, vaginal dryness, fatigue and low libido. Not only are bioidentical pellets extremely convenient to the patient, but they offer a slow release of hormones to the body for sustained hormonal benefits. Additionally, many women who have not responded optimally to conventional hormone treatments will feel a sense of renewed vitality from the bioidentical hormone pellets.
However, the cost burden of hormone pellets has been a frustration for many patients who would otherwise benefit from hormone pellets. In an effort to accommodate to patient financial concerns and alleviate some of the cost burdens of hormone pellets, Dr. Spieldoch at McDowell Mountain Gynecology will be billing the insurance company for the costs of the insertion. The patient will remain responsible for the material costs of the hormone pellets.
Ultimately, this means significantly less cost to the patient!
Please ask if you have further questions. I sincerely hope that this helps our patients with their hormonal needs and makes hormone pellets more affordable.
