Are erectile dysfunction pills generally covered by people's health care insurance?

No: Treatment of erectile dysfunction is typically not covered by healthcare insurance as it's considered a lifestyle medication. Those few plans that do cover these PDE-5 inhibitors typically don't pay for more than 4 pills/month so you know what that means! Unfortunately, these pills aren't cheap. Plus they're prescription only so avoid pharmacies that offer to sell w/o prescription.
