How some consumers are getting their avodart prescriptions covered by insurance
At $91 a month (assuming 0.5mg daily) from some locations, Avodart can get pretty expensive. Some users have been posting that their insurance is covering it however...

Note: Avodart has not been approved for the treatment of Male Pattern Baldness. It is a drug intended for the treatment of BPH, and as a result, any usage of the medication for off label purposes is strictly illegal. The following information is being posted on several web sites by their users. HairlossTalk strongly advises its users to continue to proceed with caution in regards to Avodart both in the interest of remaining safe and healthy, and to wait for the clinical data on hair loss to be released before attempting to treat your own hair loss with it.


Users Post:

Some rather adamant users have been announcing that their insurance is covering the medication for them, effectively dropping the cost to them by a significant percentage. Here is one of the users experiences as posted on one of the public forums:

Order Placed:

"I ordered from for 50 dollars for a written prescription to be sent to me by snail mail, waited about a day, and called them back to ask if they could call in the prescription to my local pharmacy. They called it in, and I got the confirmation by Email."


"Before I went to pick up my Avodart, I called the Pharmacy to see if everything was ready. They said yes and that I needed to bring in my insurance card. I told them I wasn't sure if it would be covered, but if not, I would just pay full price. He paused for a second and said to give him my Insurance ID from the Insurance Card along with my Address so he could check to see if it would be covered.

I have Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance. A few seconds later he gets back on the phone and says "Jason, you don't have to bring your insurance card in with you Monday - its covered and will cost you $26.00 for 30 capsules. So I go tomorrow afternoon to get it."
