Vasectomy Costs Near Dallas Fort-Worth, Texas
Paying for Your Vasectomy
The cash price for a vasectomy at Comfort Procedures is $680. That includes your initial consultation with the doctor, the procedure itself (both done in one visit, if you wish) and any questions you might have during the post-surgery healing process.
At Comfort Procedures, we deliberately keep the cost of vasectomy as low as possible so that all men can take advantage of it, whether you have insurance or not. We know there are places that charge more but that doesn’t mean you are getting more for your money. When you choose Comfort Procedures, you are getting a physician who specializes in doing vasectomy surgeries so he is really good at what he does; you get a highly knowledgeable and efficient staff; you enjoy a comfortable environment where your spouse or friend can accompany you during the surgery if you wish; and you only need one short visit to the clinic.
We believe your time is valuable so we offer a vasectomy procedure with the convenience of a single visit to the clinic and no required follow-up appointments. Including the registration process, you will be in and out of Comfort Procedures Center in less than an hour.
We accept credit cards but not checks. If you would like a payment plan, please contact Advance Care. The phone number is 800-432-9470 and the website is www.advancecarecard.com
Please call us at 469-931-0684 to schedule your appointment for a no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy with Comfort Procedures. We are available by phone during regular clinic hours, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Central Time, Monday through Friday and this is the best way to reach us for quick questions and appointments.
The total cost of the vasectomy surgery is $680.00.
At the time you choose your appointment date and time, you will be asked to pay a firm $100 of that total $680 cost as a scheduling fee. This $100 scheduling fee will apply to the $680 cost of the procedure when you arrive for your scheduled appointment. On the day you come to the clinic for your vasectomy procedure, the balance of only $580 will be due. Before you make your appointment and pay this $100, we want you to be aware that this is scheduling fee is a non-refundable fee. When you finalize your appointment, you will pay this scheduling fee, so please be certain of your intent to schedule this procedure. The reason the scheduling fee is non-refundable is that, by booking your appointment, you are indicating to our staff they should begin preparing for you to arrive for your procedure, including acquiring the supplies necessary for your procedure, securing the use of the room for the time you want, and scheduling all necessary personnel to be present for you.
Please be certain of your intent to have this procedure because, once you book the appointment, the $100 booking fee is non-refundable under any circumstances. Even if you change your mind and cancel your appointment, the $100 fee is non-refundable.
This scheduling fee is disclosed on this website, www.comfortprocedures.com as well as in various email messages we might send to you and during phone conversations. Please ask us about this if you have questions. Remember, your scheduling fee will be applied toward the total cost of your procedure.
Why the Scheduling Fee is Non-Refundable
When you choose an appointment time, you are scheduling a reserved time for your vasectomy and the staff proceeds to make all preparations. We will be spending your scheduling fee for preparations on your behalf; that’s why the $100 scheduling fee is not refunded.
When you book the appointment, your $100 is purchasing this:
(1) A time slot reserved for you only, on the date and at the time that fits your schedule
(2) A room reserved for your surgical procedure, prepped with the necessary supplies
(3) Appropriate anesthetic which will be applied for your maximum comfort and minimal discomfort
(4) The surgical instruments appropriately sterilized and functional for your particular surgery
(5) The appropriate qualified medical staff scheduled for the time you have indicated.
Many men have expressed to us that the non-refundable nature of the scheduling fee kept them committed to their goal of going through with the procedure. The idea of having a surgical procedure on a sensitive, private body part is not an interesting thought to most men and they say they might have canceled except for the fact they didn’t want to forfeit the scheduling fee.
Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy
We want to be up-front about the fact you will be spending $100 if you book an appointment, no matter if you change your mind or don’t show up. When you make your appointment, you are paying $100 to reserve a spot and time for surgery and you are commissioning us to be ready for your surgery and to not give that spot to anyone else.
Although the scheduling fee is non-refundable, we understand that occasionally there is a valid need to re-schedule the appointment and for that reason, although the $100 will not be refunded, it is possible to have that fee roll (one time) into a new appointment under certain conditions. If you call us more than 7 days prior to your scheduled surgery date, you may reschedule a new appointment time and you will not need to pay another scheduling fee. This is a one-time courtesy offer.
If you want to reschedule a second time, even if you call us more that 7 days prior to your scheduled surgery date, we will treat this as an entirely new appointment, not a re-schedule, and you will need to pay another $100 scheduling fee for the new appointment, with the balance of $580 due on the appointment date.
If you want to reschedule your appointment date but you call us 7 days or less before the date of your appointment, we will treat this as a canceled appointment, not a reschedule, and you will forfeit the first $100 scheduling fee and will need to pay another $100 scheduling fee to book a new appointment time.
If you cancel and don’t reschedule, even if it’s more than 7 calendar days in advance, then you will be forfeiting the $100 fee you paid for the appointment time. Any time that you don’t show up for your appointment, you will be forfeiting the $100 fee you paid.
We have this policy because, when you cancel or no-show, it’s not fair to the provider who has spent money and time for personnel and surgical supplies just for you.
Please call us at 469-931-0684 to confirm your appointment for a no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy. We are available by phone during regular clinic hours, 8:30-5:00, Monday through Friday, and this is the best way to reach us for quick questions and appointments.
We offer the option of either a single visit for the consultation and procedure or you can choose to have separate appointments for the initial consult and the vasectomy surgery.
Can I Use My Insurance
We don’t take insurance because insurance companies won’t let us practice medicine the way we want to do it. We want to be able to offer a vasectomy procedure in a single visit and insurance companies won’t reimburse unless we require our patients to come at least 3 or 4 times to the clinic. Most insurance plans will require that you make an appointment one day for a pre-surgery consultation, a second day for the surgery, and a third day for a follow-up. Then they require you to come back to the clinic for a semen sample. By not taking insurance, we can offer you the convenience of taking off from work for only one day.
We offer a cash price of $680 and a single visit to the clinic. If you have health insurance and you believe it might cover part of the expense of a vasectomy, your insurance company can walk you through the process of filing an out-of-network claim and we also have detailed instructions—just mention to us that you would like to receive printed instruction and a detailed receipt. When you are ready to file, call the number on the back of your insurance card. Your particular insurance policy will determine whether or not the policy will cover some of the expense. Any reimbursement of your cost will be between you and your insurance company. We will not remain involved to receive any of the insurance reimbursement because you have already paid us in full.
Here’s how it works at our clinic: We collect a non-refundable $100 from you to book the time slot and then the $580 balance for the procedure is due on the day of the surgery for a total cash price of $680.
At Gentle Procedures, $680 is all you will pay for your vasectomy with the advantage of the no-needle, no-scalpel, open-ended technique and faster recovery, in-and-out of the clinic in less than an hour. If you want the best service and the most comfortable procedure possible, it’s a price worth paying.
If you’re thinking, “But I want to use my insurance”, when you start to looking at the numbers if you choose another provider, you may be surprised to find there is no advantage to using your insurance for your vasectomy. That’s because, if you were to go to another provider who charges more but takes insurance, your out-of-pocket cost required by your insurance policy might end up being the same as our cash price. Your insurance carrier determines your portion of the responsibility, and often, with copay, co-insurance, and deductible, the patient portion comes out being about the same as our $680 cash price.
If you want the convenience of a single visit to have the procedure done by the no-scalpel, no needle method, by a physician who specializes in vasectomies, ours is a price worth paying. Look at it this way – $680 is less than the price of a new set of tires for your car and it’s only a one-time expense! Or it’s about the price of a week’s worth of groceries for a family of 4.
Why Don’t We Accept Health Insurance?
It’s not easy for a small, independent clinic to deal with insurance companies. Most people do not realize that insurance pays about 50 cents on the dollar charged or doesn’t pay at all or takes back the payment months later. That makes it very difficult for independent medical practices to remain viable.
It has been our long experience that, prior to the surgery, health insurance companies often provide inaccurate information regarding an individual’s coverage for a procedure and how much a patient may owe. After the procedure has been completed, it is not unusual for health insurance companies to inform the physician that the information they provided during pre-verification was inaccurate. For example, prior to the surgery, it is not unusual for the agent to say a person is fully covered and give us a specific amount he has to pay. Several weeks after the procedure, the insurance company will then tell us they made a mistake, the procedure was not covered and the patient needs to pay more co-insurance.
Our office is then put in the awkward position of having to contact the patient and ask for more money. By then, our patients are long-gone and often these calls are not well received. We end up in the middle of the patient and his health insurance company and the health insurance companies try to distance themselves from the problem they caused because their staff provided inaccurate information. In this scenario, when we send the patient a statement, because the surgery is a “one-and-done” procedure and we never see the patient again, the patients often simply ignore the statements we send. Our office is then required to take the loss…even though we had nothing to do with the confusion.
We consistently have good reviews from patients. When we do have dissatisfied patients, it is because their health insurance company has provided inaccurate information and we had to become “the bad guy” to try and collect payment from the patient who believes we are being unfair. These patients often unfairly blame our office for the mistakes or delays by their health insurance company.
If You Want To Use Your Health Insurance
If you have health insurance and you want to use it, it’s not that complicated to file your own insurance claim. In fact, because you are the customer and we are not, the insurance companies often deal more quickly with you, the policy holder than they would with us. If you want to file a claim, we will give you extensive instructions for how to file a claim for an out-of-network provider. If you call the phone number on the back of your insurance card, a representative can also walk you through the process.
If your policy does cover the procedure and if your insurance company does have a reimbursement, that money will come directly to you and not to us as a billing provider.

No-Needle Anesthesia and No-Scalpel Surgery Are Always Included in the Cost
At Comfort Procedures Dallas, we only employ No-Needle anesthesia for vasectomy and the No-Scalpel procedure.
Nobody likes a needle in the scrotum, so No-Needle anesthesia is pretty much universally preferred.
The No-Scalpel method is safer, more comfortable, and heals faster.
The staff operates like a well-oiled machine to get you in and out of the clinic as quickly as possible.
It is our goal to hold you hand during the entire process so you will be at ease and well-informed.
If this sounds like the kind of service you want for only $680, give us a call. 469-931-0684. If we miss your call, please leave a message so we can call you back to answer your questions.
At Comfort Procedures, we focus on performing only a few out-patient surgical procedures. This means you’re getting a physician who is well-experienced in doing vasectomies. A doctor who practices doing a procedure over and over often experiences better outcomes than a doctor who does a vasectomy only occasionally while having much of his time devoted to a wide spectrum of other procedures.
