Possible insurance will cover abdominoplasty because of back pain?
By Live_Forever on 23 Apr 2010
I'm a young woman whose recently lost about 140 lbs. from pure diet & exercise, and now I am left with a lot of excess skin around my abdomen. Although I know insurance almost never covers cosmetic surgery, It's been stated that coverage is possible if the procedure's deemed medically necessary. Therefore, seeing as I believe carrying so much skin on my front is beginning to giving me significant back problems, can a enhance my chances of coverage if I provide documented proof that the skin is putting labor on my spine? Thank you!
