There is a wide range of insurance carriers and insurance coverage. These companies make the decision to cover or not cover a medicine based upon their own internal calculations. I cannot say for certain what will or will not be covered by insurance. In my experience, ED meds are often partially covered. At least a few doses per month may be covered by your insurance, however, this may not be sufficient for every individual. They also will normally not cover every type of ED medicine, usually just one. This can cause an issue for some individuals as every medicine is not equal. Your best bet is to find a company that allows you to purchase the medicine of your choice at a reduced cost, Which is done by clinics like The ED Clinic.
