Insurance Coverage for Circumcision

shutterstock 284570099 300x200 - Circumcision Cost: New York Urology Specialists - Best Price for CircumcisionCircumcision is often covered by medical insurance in particular if performed for a medically necessary reason such as phimosis.  We do not accept insurances including Blue Cross plans for circumcision.  Same-day circumcision is convenient for many men traveling from outside New York City.

A part or the full cost of circumcision may be covered by commercial insurance plans after deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments if circumcision is performed for a medically necessary reason and if you have out-of-network benefits.  

If circumcision, circumcision revision or frenulectomy is performed for non-medical or aesthetic reasons, medical insurance does not typically cover the costs of circumcision.  You can use financing as low as 0% APR to pay for circumcision, frenuloplasty, and other medical expenses: Click to Check Eligibility and available options for financing.

When does Insurance Pay for Circumcision?

Insurances pay for circumcision when there is a medical need. In other words, when the foreskin is causing a problem. Examples include:

The cost of circumcision depends on whether it is performed under local anesthesia in the office settings or in the hospital with anesthesia.  The cost is higher if performed in the hospital or ambulatory surgery center.  Typically, circumcision in children older than 2 months requires anesthesia and cannot be performed under local anesthesia. Revision circumcision costs a little more as it often requires more time and skill to perform.

See a list of insurances that we accept.   Check if you’re eligible to Pay 0% APR for Circumcision.  

Your Choice: Circumcision in Our Office, Hospital or a Surgery Center.

From the perspective of safety and pain control, there is no difference whether we perform circumcision in our office, hospital, or surgical center.

Typically the cost of circumcision is least when performed in a sterile room in the office settings. It is more expensive by $1,000-$3,000 in the outpatient surgery center and can cost anywhere from $2,000-$5,000 more if performed in the hospital.

Circumcision under local anesthesia is the least expensive as it can be performed in the office setting which avoids the charges associated with surgical centers and hospitals. It also avoids the cost of anesthesia and the anesthesiologist who provides it.  There is no advantage of having circumcision in a hospital or a surgical center.  We perform circumcision in our office under sterile conditions, with a lower risk of infection than at a hospital.

At New York Urology Specialists, more than 90% of our patients choose to have circumcision under local anesthesia in the office settings with a high degree of satisfaction. You have a choice of anesthesia for circumcision as well as a choice of where to have a circumcision done.

We offer affordable rates for circumcision whether done in the office, surgery center or hospital. Please contact us for our current rates.

Same Day Consultation and Circumcision Option

We offer an innovative same-day consultation and circumcision service for men who are busy or are traveling to have a circumcision done in our office. This allows you to combine the initial visit and circumcision.  For many men who are visiting out-of-the-area, this can translate into significant savings.
