Depends on your area. When I started T, there was a free clinic I could go to where I only had to pay for my actual meds. But if you have no insurance, and no free clinic, you're going to have to get a job. I won't say NO one is going to just hand you a free blood test, prescription, and possibly therapy... But the odds are waaay way against you.

I'm very fortunate that I live in a major metropolitan city and we have an LGBT health center that operates on a sliding scale payment system. If we didn't have this clinic I wouldn't be on T right now. They operate off the Informed Consent model for obtaining hormones (whether for FTM or MTF transition). It's usually 3-4 appointments consisting of an intake, a hormone advocate (therapist) visit, and then your actual day you get your RX and learn to inject yourself.

Most major cities should have some form of a LGBT health center these days. I know I've seen more of them popping up even in the past year. There's resources out there - you just have to know where to look.

It's not quite free and I'm not sure how much help it will be but Brand New Day Counseling is an online counselor who only charges $40 a session without inssurance. That's right, everything is done over text chat online and it was VERY cheap. My boyfriend's medicaid covered all of his sessions free of charge and we got our letters in the mail after only 5 sessions. (Though I imagine this varies) Other than that, Planned Parenthood often offers blood tests and hormone prescriptions starting at $75 without insurance and they also take medicaid.

I hope you look into LGBT centers, I think there would be people willing to help out. Make sure to monitor your testosterone carefully and safely! I would love to know how this works out for you.

GONE! GONE!
I've heard rumors that some Planned Parenthood clinics can help.

Since when? I have Testosterone Cypionate, and while medicaid pays for it for me currently, it's originally only about $120 for a vial which is equal to 10 cc.

Since a few months ago, at least here in Chicago that's how much it's been running w/o insurance thru Walgreens. I'm fortunate that I only pay about $30 b/c of Howard Brown being sliding scale & having their own in-house Walgreens w/ a discount program.

Ah, maybe it's changed then. How strange, that's terrible. That's a lot of money.

Yeah, my buddy and I were both picking up scripts and we asked out of curiosity and I vaguely remember the guy saying $650/vial or higher depending on manufacturer and which compound variation you get. If you think that's bad you should see the prices of generic HIV/AIDS medications.

I have a question about sliding scale priced clinics- if you yourself are jobless and have no income, or an income so low as to be negligible for buying meds (let's just say less than 10k a year), do they ONLY count your income (or lack thereof) or will they make you pay a higher price if your partner has more income, even if you do not have a joint bank account? I am wondering because my significant other makes significantly more money than me, and if they take that into consideration it could jack prices up so high that I wouldn't be able to pay, and since it is for me I feel that it should be based on my income, not his.

At the sliding scale clinic I go to it's my personal income. I'm jobless & uninsured so I pay $20 for the visit and anywhere from $20-40 for a vial of T (4 month supply) + syringes. I think the form asks about dependents but I'm not certain.

I pay 40$ for my vial, which lasts for about 6-8 injections (i forgot about the exact number) and i have my injections every two weeks.
i guess it depends on where you live, but it's still slightly expensive. there's also different administration methods, which will change the kind of T and its price

You might want to consider Planned Parenthood. Some places offer transgender HRT without any therapist letter, and they usually have some sort of sliding fee?
