I’m having Mirena inserted tomorrow. I’ve done all of the research and know it’s the right choice for me.
My question is, how much does it generally cost? I’ve seen a gigantic ballpark of anywhere between $26 and $800. (I have an HSA plan.) Any thoughts?

On my old insurance, it was $500. They set me up with monthly payments of $42. Which, if I had been able to use it for the whole 5 years you’re supposed to get out of it, it would have been worth it. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for me. I hope you have better luck!!

At my clinic, it was $500 without insurance, so it just depends on how much your insurance will cover.

I payed $75 at my clinic. It depends on how much your insurance will cover.

Here in Canada without insurance it cost me $350 dollars. Best money I have ever spent 🙂

I think you are going to see it between $500-800. The cost of the Mirena went up last year when Bayer got the indication for heavy menstrual bleeding attached to it. They are pretty expensive but… if you calculate it out over the 5 years it is a good deal. However, if you don’t end up keeping it for some reason (don’t like it or want to get pregnant) then you loose some of that cost-benefit.

It really depends on how much your clinic is charging and how much if any your insurance covers but I’d expect to pay up to 800.00. Also when I got my copper IUD a few years ago, it really cost more like 1,000 after the std and pregnancy tests and appointments. Best 1k I ever spent!

It cost me a $25 office visit copay. No joke.
I wish you luck! Insertion isn’t nearly as awful as they play it up to be.
However, I had an awful experience with the 6 months I had it it, and my body eventually rejected it.

There was a clinic in my area that put Mirena and Parauard in for only $5. EVen though I have a regular Dr, the $5 was a lot better then the $300 deductable I would have had too. It was a nice office too.

i got the paragard, so it might be a little different, and it was only the office copay. it was 3 visits though. the doctor made me come in for a consultation and a pap, then an appointment for the insertion, and a final appointment a month later to check its position. in total it was $120. considering my nuvaring was $35/month copay, it paid for itself in less than 4 months.

It cost me $90 with insurance in Canada. Good luck tomorrow!

I had a $40 copay and the insurance picked it up. I think it was $500

My portion after insurance was five-something… $524 rings a bell. Insurance covered $400ish, according to the bill… it had originally been between $900-$1000.

I should be going in next week for my insertion. How was it???
My doc office told me that it would be $900 some for the iud, and $120 for the office visit, but my insurance is going to pick up most of it

So, it’s $931 for just the IUD. I have to pay all of it since I haven’t met my deductable yet.
Pretty killer, but it beats the price of birth control. Over the 5 years that Mirena lasts, I would have paid $3,480 ($58/month) in birth control, versus the $15/month that Mirena is over 5 years.
