    You can get your own BW and get your normal BW through your GP. Once locked in, 2x/year is good providing nothing changes.

    As far as life insurance...no clue.
    Even when I went to a clinic that accepted my insurance, it was so random whether insurance would cover certain things. For example, sometimes my lab work was covered, then I'd get a $600 bill from the lab because insurance deemed that one of the tests wasn't necessary and thereby denied the whole claim. Then I'd start the arguing of "What would you charge my insurance company, because that is all I am going to pay you" mess, and I'd get it knocked down to $140. It was just a HUGE pain in the a$$ because of what insurance picked and chose to cover. In the end, Defy is actually cheaper with everything being 100% out of pocket.

    +1 for Defy
    https://www.defymedicalstore.com/

    A plus is that if your T levels are>1500 its ok.

    Also, im wondering if anyone has mentioned trying a restart protocol vs straight to trt?

    Even out of pocket one visit every 6months works out to about 20 bucks a month plus meds so maybe 75/ month when the dust settles. Plus they prescribe AI.

    Another vote for defy. Was with them when I started trt and will likely go back after I’m done cycling.
