Cost of Circumcision

Infant circumcision done in a hospital costs about $1,500 to $2,500. If there are complications, which happens to about 3% of boys, it could cost considerably more. Adult circumcision costs about $2,400 to $3700. In some states Medicare and other types of health insurance cover circumcision.

Circumcision done by a mohel, a Jewish circumciser, is usually done privately and costs significantly less. Muslim circumcision is also often a private event, which doesn’t have a significant cost.
