Rhinoplasty and Insurance for Deviated Septum
- Philadelphia, PA
- 8 months ago
Hello - so I scheduled a pre-op appointment with Dr. Pontell in Media PA. I have always wanted to fix my nose cosmetically, but also medically as I have a deviated septum and can never breathe out of my right nostril. Dr Pontell confirmed that I did have a deviated septum and asked if I had insurance. Well today I call his coordinator, who tells me that by submitting my claim to insurance it will actually end up costing me extra money. Who in their right mind has heard of such a thing? I have to pay his cosmetic fee which is $7,500 plus atleast $1,000 for the surgery center AND by submitting to insurance it will probably cost more, bc then I'll have to pay a deductible. The whole thing sounds so ridiculous. I'd probably be better off with Jefferson Facial Plastics. Does anyone else have any input?
