We'll you only answered half my question...I also want to know if the Rx my family doctor gives me for ED drugs will be paid for, less my copay, by my health insurance.? ED drugs were not reimbursed by insurance unless a doctor could justify the need for such drugs...usually in a written statement.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
I don't know your health insurance you have and the pharmacy program on your drug program
you are right, usually most prescription plans don't cover ED medications.
your family doctor has to evaluate your ED
why do you have ED?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I believe I have ED as side effect of other medications I use for heart disease...lisinopril, ranexa and simvastatin

I also carry nitro pills but have never used that drug. So far me sexual activity has not caused angina.

you should talk to your primary care doctor about this
your primary care doctor could write you a letter for you.
or he could send to you a urologist for evaluation.
