You’ve seen the commercials, haven’t you? Low T (low testosterone).
Would you spend $275 a month on a prescription cream to make you feel like a man again?
Is it easier to answer if someone else were paying – your insurance, perhaps?
What if you belong to a union that gets to decide regarding what medications your group insurance plan will cover. How would you vote?
What if the choice is: a) spend that money on your children’s future health care; or b) spend it today on your neighbor’s sexual dysfunction?

Without entering the debate as to whether or not it’s worthwhile to treat “Low T” (low testosterone) check this Web site to learn how to save up to $20 a month on AndroGel, a testosterone gel applied to the skin: http://www.androgel.com/extras_support.html.
Potential cost if 1,000,000 middle-aged Americans spend $2000/year on Low T:
1,000,000 x $2,000 = $2,000,000,000
(That’s $2 billion, enough to buy hearing aids for at least a million children.)
How would you like save money on healthcare?
