Circumcisions, which are typically not covered by medical insurance unless it's to treat a medical condition, such as phimosis, costs between $1500-$2500.

The cost depends on where in the World you live.

In the United States circumcision is generally not paid for by health insurance unless there is a medical reason, for example severe phimosis (tight foreskin). If you wish to have it done with only local anesthetic (i.e., awake without general anesthesia) it will likely cost $400 to $500. The cost varies depending on location and the particular physician.

In countries with national health care such as Canada and the United Kingdom circumcision is not paid for unless it is medically necessary. In these countries the cost also varies by location. It can cost 300 to 400 Canadian dollars or 200 to 300 British pounds.

Circumcision is not covered by health insurance plans as it is not a medically necessary procedure. You can expect to pay between $2,500 and $3,000. The largest part of the expense is for anesthesia.

Circumcision has not been demonstrated to have any medical benefit, and it does have possible complications and adverse effects due both to the procedure itself and the anesthesia. Circumcision also can have a painful recovery period, especially for adolescents who have frequent erections. Circumcision can also have long term adverse effects. The removal of the foreskin results in gradual desensitization of the glans (penis head), causing decreased pleasure during intercourse.

For these reasons circumcision rates are dropping in the United States, one of the few countries where circumcision was once common. In 2007 the rate of circumcision in the United States was less than 40%.

Circumcision is not covered by health insurance as it is not a medically necessary procedure so you will have to pay for the full cost yourself out of pocket. Circumcision with general anesthesia should cost between $2000 and $3000. This includes the doctor performing the procedure and the anesthesiologist. Circumcision of adults is less expensive, as adults can opt to have only local anesthesia. Circumcision has no known medical benefit, and most doctors recommend against routine infant circumcision. Circumcision, like all surgeries, has risks of adverse medical events including surgical error, prolonged bleeding, infection, and pain. A permanent decrease in penile sensitivity and sexual pleasure is also common since circumcision removes the foreskin, which protects the sensitive glans (head) of the penis. Circumcision is extremely rare in the world outside the United States, and even within the United States, the circumcision rate has dropped by more than half. In 1980 over 80% of newborns in the United States were circumcised while in 2007 less than 40% of infants were circumcised.

If you don't have a medical reason for the procedure, then it's probably $3000-5000. If you do have a medical reason for it, then your insurance should cover whatever percent in the contract.

How much does it cost for an adult to get circumcised?

Circumcision with general anesthesia should cost between $2000 and $3000 depending on where you live. This cost includes the doctor performing the procedure and the anesthesiologist. As circumcision is not a medically necessary procedure, it will not be covered by most health insurance plans so you will have to pay for the full cost yourself. Circumcision has no known medical benefit, and routine circumcision is not recommended by any major medical association. Most doctors recommend against circumcision because of the possible adverse events following the surgery, including prolonged bleeding, infection, moderate to severe pain, and long term decrease in penile sensitivity and sexual pleasure.
