Who should consider BHRT?
In general, many men and women will experience symptoms of hormonal imbalance at some point in their lives. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) will help replenish or balance your body’s natural hormones. Symptoms associated with the decline of our hormones can start as early as the mid-twenties. A simple blood test can indicate if you will benefit from hormone replacement.
What is the cost?
Our comprehensive BHRT program requires a consultation with Dr. Inda Mowett. She will evaluate your symptoms and determine the best plan for your hormone deficiency. Each treatment is customized depending of your symptoms and test results.
HRT consultation price is based on whether you are a new or established patient at our medical practice:
- New Patient Initial (60 minutes) – $329
- Established Patient (60 minutes) – $275
- New Couple HRT (90 minutes) – $599
- Established Couple (90 minutes) – $539
Prices are subject to change.
What is it included the HRT Consultation?

Is the consultation and blood work covered by medical insurance plans?
Most medical insurance policies typically do not cover expenses from Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Some insurances may reimburse patients for expenses related to some of the BHRT services such as blood tests and hormone prescriptions. An itemized receipt with a description of charges and levels of office visit will be provided, to submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement. The Aesthetic & Wellness Center will not present a bill to any insurance company for services provided or related charges. If you are covered by Medicare, then you must complete and sign a ABN form prior to participating in The Aesthetic & Wellness Center services.
What hormones are tested and what is the cost?
Dr. Mowett will determine your hormonal testing based on your symptoms and medical history. Some insurance companies may cover the cost of the blood test, while others will not cover any service associated with BHRT.
The Aesthetic & Wellness Center has contracted with licensed medical laboratories, reducing the cost for these tests. The costs for hormone panels for women start at $275 and include 13 tests, and starts at $300 for men and include 15 tests. Additional testing may be needed for evaluation of nutritional and other hormonal deficiencies.
Will I require a prescription?
Yes, BHRT requires a prescription(s) of the hormones showing a deficit or those which need balancing based on your symptoms and test results. We strongly recommend natural hormone replacement prepared at a compounding pharmacy. The Aesthetic & Wellness Center contracts with license and certified pharmacies that will prepare your prescription using the highest standards. The prescriptions will be formulated for your individual needs. The selected pharmacy will contact you to obtain additional information and a mailing address.
How often am I required to have a periodic follow-up visit?
Periodic follow-up visits and blood tests are required to evaluate your response to the therapy, evaluation of symptoms and adjustment to the hormone(s) prescription if necessary. The frequency of the follow-up visit usually occurs 4 to 6 weeks after consultation and thereafter every 3 to 6 months, depending on the number of hormones requiring replacement. The cost is $150 per visit. The cost of the hormone test will depend on the type and frequency required.
