Does Maximum Sustained Performance Accept Insurance for Testosterone Replacement Therapy or Other Hormone Treatments?

As an insurance company is a for-profit enterprise, it has to create an internal business model that collects more cash than it pays out to customers while factoring in the costs of running its business.

To do so, insurance companies build their business model on twin pillars – underwriting and investment income.

Make no mistake, insurance company underwriters go to great lengths to make sure the financial math works in their favor.

We do not accept insurance. Insurance companies view Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) as an elective therapy. And have certain guidelines that will not give our patients optimal levels.

With insurance, if your total Testosterone level does not fall below 250 you are considered normal and do not need treatment according to their guidelines. Which is absolutely incorrect.

If the level falls below 250 they will allow treatment, however, the Insurance companies will not allow physicians to optimize your levels. The guidelines stipulate that the physician is only allowed to get the patient back into the “normal range, typically around 300-400. To truly optimize Testosterone the level should be between 800-1300 (where most men are in their early 20’s) and no higher.

Also, to ensure that side effects are minimized, men should be prescribed an estrogen blocker* & HCG** (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), which insurance companies do not cover. Without the insurance companies involved, we can ensure that our patients experience all of the amazing benefits (improved energy, libido, & metabolism) of optimal Testosterone levels.

Remember there are 3 types of people out there that go on Testosterone treatment, the first type gets little to no results due to their levels only getting to the 300-400 range (low end of “normal”), the 2nd type feels a little better due to getting their levels between 400-600 (average) but also experience side effects (man boobs, testicular shrinkage), and the 3rd type is those that do not go through insurance and who have their levels optimized between 800-1300 and feel amazing.

Many men, as they age, convert (aromatize) more and more of their Testosterone into Estrogen. Too much Estrogen leads to increased belly fat, man boobs (gynecomastia), loss of libido, loss of muscle mass, & fatigue. In order to limit this conversion, we prescribe an estrogen blocker (typically Anastrozole). **When men begin Testosterone therapy one of the potential side effects is testicular shrinkage. The body becomes dependent upon the new source of Testosterone and little by little reduce the amount naturally produced. We do not want this to occur which is why we prescribe HCG. HCG stimulates natural Testosterone production and ensures that shrinkage does not occur and has positive impacts on Testosterone levels.,
