ED isn’t an inevitable part of aging, like the appearance of a few gray hairs or developing a need for reading glasses. It’s a highly treatable medical condition that you don’t have to suffer with in secret. With help, you can get back to enjoying a satisfying sexual relationship with your spouse or partner.

Talk to Someone Who’s Been There
Your physician can give you information about the technical aspects of having a penile implant, but there are some questions that can only be answered by someone who actually has a penile prosthesis. Connect with a patient educator to learn more about what daily life is like with a penile implant, including if the operation will affect your sensitivity and ability to ejaculate.
Confirm Your Insurance Coverage
Your penile implant cost will depend upon the terms of your policy, but many Medicare and private insurance plans do cover a large portion of the cost. The reimbursement specialist at your urologist’s office may also be able to help you get information about your out-of-pocket cost for the procedure. Learn more on insurance coverage here.
