We include all doctors visits and lab tests in our 6-month “Total Care” program. This program includes the hormones most people need, excluding growth hormone for $5,000. Typically, a male patient in his 50s also spends about $1500 a month on the prescription cost of growth hormone. A female patient her 50s might spend around $1200.
The cost of HGH injectable medications can run $600 to over $2,500 depending on the amount you use, the brands you use, and where you get it. You also need a doctor’s prescription, which involves seeing a doctor and getting tested at least once every 4 or 5 months. The cost for this varies depending on the doctor, but can be anywhere from $500 to $1200 per visit, including lab tests.
Comparing The Legal And Illegal Costs Of HGH
If you buy HGH illegally through online black market sources, you will spend around $300 to $500 a month. Along with legal risks, there is the risk of getting tainted HGH, inert HGH (not active), or something like ArmorAll that isn’t HGH at all. If you are lucky, you will simply wind up wasting your money. Bodybuilders typically use 2-4 times the recommended dose of HFH, so cost is a big impetus for them to buy HGH illegally. They also have a life expectancy below 60.
If you buy your HGH through a doctor in Mexico, Canada or other foreign countries, it is still illegal even though you have a “doctor’s prescription.” HGH must be prescribed by a U.S. doctor, and if you get caught you face the same legal ramifications as if you bought black market stuff online. That being said, one Mexican clinic is advertising its HGH services as follows: a full panel blood test ($995) to be completed at your local lab and drugs to be ordered online from them at between $7.50 and $15.50 per iu. Most people take around 14 iu per week, so you might save $400 a month, but that’s for Chinese Jintropin
The minimum monthly cost of doctor-prescribed hormone replacement therapy at a cut-rate clinic is about $800, including the drug. It is legal, but that is about all it is. When you fill your prescription at the clinic, you may be given HCG, inert HGH, or Chinese counterfeits. There are plenty complaints about these clinics selling fake HGH, and most people don’t realize they’ve been duped. They wind up thinking growth hormone doesn’t work.
A good program is going include all needed hormones, not just HGH. The cost of the top programs runs between $1000-$2000 a month. The cost of growth hormone will run between $1500-$3000 a month. We believe there are two top programs in the U.S., and we are one of them.
Why Is Growth Hormone So Expensive?
There are 3 reasons why prescribed, the FDA-approved version is so expensive:
Growth hormone is difficult to make
It is difficult to ship and store
It is produced by a limited number of FDA-approved companies
What If I Cannot Afford Growth Hormone?
Research has shown that GHRH and sermorelin can be extremely effective in stimulating growth hormone and may actually benefit some people more than growth hormone,

You can boost your natural GH production through sleep and by supporting your body with the right foods and vitamins.
Some oral peptide secretagogues will also work to a small extent to boost your body’s own growth hormone production.
Women who have achieved the correct balance of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and thyroid hormone report feeling better and more energetic than they have in years, without growth hormone.
Dietary supplements and homeopathic HGH products do not work. The body cannot absorb HGH through the skin or sublingually are too big molecules are too big. The HGH in oral supplements is broken down in the digestion system and never enters the bloodstream.
Will Insurance Cover Growth Hormone Prescriptions?
Most insurance companies will not cover hormone treatments except for severe pediatric disorders. Insurance companies will sometimes cover the cost of growth hormone drugs for adults with an extreme deficiency. This would be indicated by a peak GH response of less than 9m UL during an insulin tolerance test, or if you are already being treated for pituitary disorder. A case could be also be made if you have had damage to your pituitary gland (for example, you have undergone radiation to the pituitary), have short bowel syndrome, or have suffered head trauma. Some former boxers and football players have been covered by insurance for growth hormone due to head trauma, but this must be documented by an MRI.
