What to Know About Vasectomy Reversal Costs

“How much does a vasectomy reversal cost?” That’s the first question that most men ask when they decide it’s time to reverse their vasectomy, and it can cause hesitation when there’s no clear information. You deserve to make an informed decision on your family’s future, and at Posterity Health, we want to make that process easier for you.

This detailed breakdown of the costs associated with vasectomy reversals will help educate you on what to expect for this procedure. If you still have any questions about vasectomy reversal costs or expenses, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our male fertility specialists.

Cost Factors for Vasectomy Reversals 


The cost of reversing a vasectomy is not set in stone. Several factors will affect the cost of your procedure, such as: 

  • The microsurgical technique (i.e., vasovasostomy vs vasoepididymostomy) 
  • The location of your procedure (costs can range widely across providers in the United States) 
  • Fees for the anesthesia, supplies, and the facility 
  • The skill, reputation, and experience of the surgeon 
  • Any other necessary follow-up procedures, tests, or visits after the initial surgery 

Depending on your provider, your vasectomy reversal costs may be bundled into an all-inclusive package, or you may be charged for each service on top of your procedure. 


How Much Does a Vasectomy Reversal Cost? 

While you can generally expect a vasectomy to cost around $1,000 on average, vasectomy reversal costs can be much higher (sometimes 10 times as much or more). 

On average, a vasectomy reversal can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000. 

Beware Low-Cost Providers 

Lower price points may sound appealing, but it’s important to keep in mind that cheaper is not always better. A low quote for a vasectomy reversal may be intentionally misleading, and it may not include all the associated fees and costs for things like the anesthesia or the surgery center. 

In addition, a lower price point may suggest that the provider cuts corners or lacks the same level of training or experience as other providers. For the most optimal chances of success, it’s best to find a fellowship-trained microsurgeon who is trained in male reproductive health and has extensive experience with vasectomy reversal procedures. 

Can Insurance Cover the Costs of My Vasectomy Reversal?

Even if your insurer provided coverage for your initial vasectomy (when completed as an outpatient procedure), it is unlikely that your insurer will cover the reversal operation.

Most medical insurance plans and policies do not cover vasectomy reversal procedures. Unfortunately, many insurance coverage providers do not view the procedure as “medically necessary” and classify vasectomy reversals as “elective” procedures.

That said, some providers of medical insurance will cover a portion of the costs of a vasectomy reversal. It’s best to call your insurance carrier ahead of your first consultation to check if your plan will cover an “outpatient microsurgical vasovasostomy.”

Posterity Health partners with several companies that provide fertility benefits outside of what is offered by traditional insurance plans. Posterity Health’s fertility benefit partners include: Progyny, Maven, Care Credit, Carrot, and Livestrong Fertility. You can also use your HSA/FSA account to pay for services.

Get Flexible Financing for Your Vasectomy Reversal 

Many men cannot afford to pay out of pocket for the vasectomy reversal in a single payment. Instead, many couples will secure financing to make the procedure fit within their monthly budgets. Posterity Health offers financing options that make it possible for couples to book the procedure when they need it most and pay it off over time.
