The cost of a vasectomy procedure will vary depending on the anaesthetic chosen (local or twilight sedation), which clinic you attend and what kind of health cover you have. Your vasectomy cost can also vary depending on any concessions you hold, such as a Healthcare card.
Though there may be an out of pocket expense with vasectomy, over the long term it is a very cost-effective form of contraception with a much higher degree of efficacy than condoms or other contraceptive methods.

If you have private hospital insurance that covers vasectomy procedures, then the only cost you will incur is the excess on your policy. The excess amount will vary depending on the policy you hold and you will need to contact your insurance provider for information.
