Erectile Dysfunction: Vacuum Constriction Devices

(continued)

How Much Does a Vacuum Constriction Device Cost?

Vacuum constriction devices vary in cost from $300 to $500, depending on the brand and type. The battery-powered versions tend to be more expensive, but also tend to work a little more quickly. Battery-powered devices are especially helpful for men who do not have good hand strength or coordination or who have arthritis.

There are several devices currently on the market that work effectively. Some of these devices can be obtained without a prescription.

Does Insurance Cover Vacuum Constriction Devices?

Most insurance policies, including Medicare, cover at least part of the costs of a vacuum constriction device, especially if a medical cause for ED has been documented. Medicaid, however, does not cover the device except under extreme circumstances in certain states.
