Is Cosmetic Surgery Covered by Health Insurance?

Will my health insurance cover plastic surgery?
Generally speaking, insurance policies pay only for plastic surgery that is not considered cosmetic in nature. Your physician can supply your health insurance with information about the medical necessity of your plastic surgery.

Here are some plastic surgery procedures that MAY possibly be covered by your health insurance if it is being performed to improve your health:

  • Abdominal surgery (hernia, back pain, etc.)
  • Breast Surgery (neck and/or back pain, reconstruction, overly developed male breasts, etc.)
  • Ear Surgery (to correct ear deformity, either due to birth defect or disease)
  • Eyelid Surgery (when lids obscure vision, etc.)
  • Facial Surgery (deformities, paralysis, etc.)
  • Hand Surgery (deformities, carpel tunnel syndrome, nerve and/or tendon injuries, etc.)
  • Nasal Surgery (birth defects, disease, injuries, or conditions which may affect breathing, etc.)
