How To Get Semaglutide Without Insurance?

Learn how to get Semaglutide without insurance, and an estimate on the approximate costs.

Read on

Semaglutide is the active ingredient in the popular medications Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus. These medications are commonly used for regulating blood sugar levels for people with type 2 diabetes, or for helping people lose weight. But, they are also very expensive if you don’t have insurance or if your insurance does not cover them. 

Below, we will cover how to get Semaglutide without insurance, as well as the usual cost of Semaglutide medications without insurance, and how you might be able to save some money on Semaglutide medications even if you don’t use your insurance.

How to get Semaglutide without insurance?

If you find a pharmacy with Semaglutide available, you can ask to buy it for their “cash” price, if you don’t have insurance. The pharmacy should be able to tell you the cash price of the medication, and as long as they get that from you, you don’t need to use your insurance.

Some sources, like through us at Strut Health, offer compounded versions of Semaglutide medications from compounding pharmacies. Usually, compounding pharmacies don’t contract with insurance companies, and it’s common for them to only offer “cash” prices. Often, these prices are quite affordable.

What is the general cost of Semaglutide without insurance?

As of May 2024, the general cost of semaglutide medications without insurance may be the following:

Ozempic – About $1,000 per month

Wegovy – About $1,400 per month

Rybelsus – About $1,000 per month

Compounded Semaglutide medications from Strut Health Starting at about $200 per month

As you can see, brand-name medications can come along with some pretty hefty price tags. But, compounded options from reputable telehealth services and compounding pharmacies like Strut Health can be less expensive and more available.

Why would someone choose to get Semaglutide without insurance?

Someone might choose to buy Semaglutide medications without insurance because they do not have insurance coverage at the moment.

Also, many insurances will not cover Semaglutide medications. It may be more common for your insurance to cover a Semaglutide medication when it has been prescribed for Type 2 Diabetes, but it is less likely to cover these medications for weight loss alone. If someone’s insurance did not cover a Semaglutide medication, but they still wanted it anyway, they could opt to just pay the cash price for it.

Some people are finding compounded sources for Semaglutide medications, like Strut Health. Since these medications are currently in a drug shortage, licensed compounding pharmacies are legally able to compound them. Since most compounding pharmacies don’t contract with insurance, this may be a cash only transaction, but may still be a good deal for patients. This is another reason why someone may buy Semaglutide without insurance, even if they have medical insurance.
