In order to understand your medical profile, your provider needs a complete picture of your health, including your symptoms, your medical history, your treatment goals, and an analysis of your blood. This blood testing will also give us an idea whether you might develop any side effects of hormone therapy soon after starting any treatments you might be eligible for. Our initial testosterone screening is designed to capture all of this information easily and conveniently for you.
We won’t know until you’ve completed your initial screening, and your provider has had a chance to review your symptoms, medical history, treatment goals, and an analysis of your blood. Once your provider has reviewed all of this information, he or she can determine whether you’ll benefit from testosterone therapy and can recommend a treatment plan.
The initial screening includes a telehealth consultation with a Vault provider to review your symptoms, medical history and treatment goals; a blood draw with a provider who comes to your home or office; and a treatment plan recommendation from a provider who has reviewed your lab work. If treatment is appropriate, your provider will prescribe a treatment plan for you.
The initial screening is free and if you chose testosterone therapy a blood sample is required and costs $150 per blood draw.
Testosterone treatment plans vary by medication type and range in cost from $165-299 per month.
Vault offers a variety of treatment options including testosterone self-injections, topical creams, and oral medication.

Please reach out to the Patient Experience team ([email protected]) to reschedule your appointment for another time when you are feeling better.
Lab work can take between 1-4 days to process. You will learn about your results during a follow-up call with a Vault provider, who will review your lab work with you and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
The Vault patient care team will organize a follow-up call 6 weeks after beginning or modifying any treatment. Once your levels and symptoms have improved and stabilized, we will schedule follow-up visits (including additional blood draws) every 3-6 months. For your follow-up blood draws, we will send a provider to you (pending location).
If you let us know at least 24 hours before your scheduled time, we can find a better time for your blood draw. However, because your appointment may involves a provider coming to you, patients who miss or change their appointments less than 24 hours in advance will be subject to a rescheduling fee.

Sometimes insurance companies send a statement (called an Explanation of Benefits or EOB or for Medicare Recipients; Quarterly Summary) showing the difference between what was billed to them and what they are willing to pay. The statement may even indicate that a portion is “patient responsibility.” This is simply an update to you from your insurance company.
