MALE IMPOTENCE PRODUCTS
Our trained staff is available to discuss with you the various options available, whether it be the vacuum constriction device (VCD) also known as vacuum erection device (VED), testosterone replacement, Viagra (an oral tablet), Muse (a urethral insert), Caverject (a penile injection), or compounded prescriptions such as alprostadil or the triple mix of alprostadil, papaverine and phentolamine. We do this by appointment in a private consultation room in a relaxed atmosphere. We offer all major brands, carry complete lines and provide step-by-step instructions, informative video tapes, and one-on-one question and answer sessions with knowledgeable staff. If you reside outside of the greater Kansas City area the sessions can be handled by telephone. See special instructions for the telephone service at the bottom of this document.
Impotence is often the first symptom of a significant medical disorder and should not be treated until the cause has been determined by a doctor, preferably a urologist, so I would encourage you to talk to your doctor. All of the medications and most of the devices require a prescription but several of the manufacturers now have non-prescription versions of the vacuum devices.
VCD/VED: Prescription vs. Non-Prescription
VCD/VED's are available in both prescription and non-prescription (OTC) versions and are both used to treat erectile dysfunction (male impotence). Both types are very effective but prices do vary considerably between the two versions for the following reasons:
- Little better quality
- Most have a life time manufacturers warranty
- All come with a training video
- Help in product selection and demonstration at no additional fee
- Training session at no additional fee
- Shipping in the continental US by UPS ground at no additional cost
- In most instances, if Medicare or your insurance company allows, we accept assigment*.
- Little less quality
- Usually 0nly one year manufacturers warranty
- Only several have a training video
- Help in product selection and demonstration at an additional fee
- Training session at an additional fee
- Shipping & handling costs are additional
- With a doctor's prescription we will bill Medicare or your insurance unassigned*.
||*Assignment means we submit your claim to the third party and they pay us directly. Unassigned means we submit your claim to the third party, you pay us at time of service, and the third party will reimburse you, full or partial, if they deem approriate.
Medicare and other Insurance
The prescription devices, with the appropriate diagnosis, are usually covered by Medicare. Medicare pays 80% of the allowable expense, and if you have a tie-in insurance program that pays the deductible, you have no out-of-pocket expense. Most other insurance plans also cover the cost of these devices. Our insurance office will be assist you in this process and in most instances we accept assigment.
