Insurance providers generally cover costs for reconstructive surgery but not for cosmetic surgery. For example, insurance providers will often pay for breast augmentation to reconstruct a breast following a mastectomy; breast reduction to remedy back pain caused by heavy breasts; eyelid surgery to remove sagging skin that blocks vision; or nose surgery to allow for a patient to breathe better. Insurance providers are required by law to cover breast reconstruction surgery and any cosmetic operations necessary to create symmetry in either breast. If your surgery is covered by insurance, pre-certification is required. We will be happy to assist you with the process.
Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery participates with many popular insurance plans. For more information on the health plans accepted, call our office today. Remember, always check with your insurance provider to confirm your specific coverage and benefits.
Insurance cards are to be presented at the time of check-in prior to being seen. If a patient does not have their insurance card(s), they will be responsible for payment until such proof of insurance is provided.
