A concern for many men experiencing erectile dysfunction after they decide on vacuum therapy as a treatment is “Does health insurance cover erectile dysfunction?” Overall, the answer to the question of coverage depends on the reason for the ED.
To cover or not to cover
The majority of health insurance providers, including Medicaid, will cover vacuum therapy treatments for erectile dysfunction if the ED is associated with or the result of prostate cancer or prostate cancer treatment. The amount of coverage will vary depending on the provider.
If the ED is not associated with prostate cancer or prostate cancer treatment, it is rare for vacuum therapy or other types of natural remedies for erectile dysfunction to be covered. To be sure, you should contact your provider to see whether your health insurance will cover erectile dysfunction for any cause.
