A Step - By - Step Guide
Legacy Health & Wellness is a Concierge Program Practice, which means we offer premium health care at an affordable cost. Our rates cannot be adjusted for patients who are currently receiving hormone therapy elsewhere. If you choose to begin treatment with us, we cannot review past records and/or lab work from another office.
1. Schedule a New Patient/Lab Work Appointment
We will not charge you an office fee to draw labs (cost of labs is not included in our fees listed below and is determined by your insurance through LabCorp if used). If you are unable to use insurance, LabCorp has set up a discounted lab panel for your convenience. Our office only requires your insurance card information for LabCorp.
2. Schedule a Review Labs/Begin Treatment Appointment
The initial Review Labs/Begin Treatment Appointment has a one time fee ($175) for our patients who choose pellet insertion. During this appointment, we will discuss your hormone levels and come up with a detailed comprehensive plan. We will ask more in-depth health questions to get a better understanding of your unique health and wellness goals. Be prepared to spend at least an hour with our provider during this appointment. Recommendations will be made and your unique bio-identical hormone therapy prescription and treatment (pellets) will be available to you at this time.
The 2nd appointment: Review Labs/Begin Treatment Fee is $175 (This does NOT include the pellet insertion fee)
Female Pellet Insertion Fee $375 (this fee includes your pellets)
Male Pellet Insertion Fee $675 (this fee includes your pellets)
Our provider will prescribe medications like injections, creams or troches if patient does not receive pellets
Pellet therapy is cheaper in the long run, especially when you compare to the cost of testosterone creams, injections or pills. You also won’t need to worry about the application of messy creams or weekly injections.
Male and female prices vary due to the different hormone pellets utilized and their absorption/replacement rates. However, men (5-6 months) can go longer between pellet insertion appointments compared to women (3-4 months).
During the Review Labs/Begin Treatment appointment, a decision is made to either begin pellet insertion, a prescription for creams, troches or testosterone injections. We will send your prescription over to the pharmacy but cannot guarantee coverage through your insurance. We DO NOT correspond with insurance companies because we are a Concierge Program Practice. If your prescription for creams, troches or injections is denied we can call your prescription into our preferred compounding pharmacy. They are open 7 days a week and can deliver prescriptions right to your doorstep.
3. Follow-Up Lab Work + 6 Week Check-up (New Patients Only)
We will schedule lab work 6 weeks after your first pellet insertion so we can re-evaluate your hormone levels and make adjustments if needed. This is only required for new hormone patients. If additional pellets are recommended during this appointment, (usually one or two) there is an additional fee ($50) per pellet. The pellet insertion fee is waived during this time.

Follow-up/Lab work appointments will continue along with pellet insertions.
For Women: Every 3-4 Months ($375)

Returning Non-Pellet Patients:
Follow-up/Lab work appointments will continue along with office visits for prescription refills.
