Insurance and breast asymmetry
Insurance coverage of breast asymmetry
That depends on the wording of your insurance policy. You need to look at the policy to see what the coverage of developmental and congenital abnormalities is. Some have age limits or other criteria. Changing insurance may not be an option because of pre-existing condition clauses. If you have symptoms like back or neck pain because of the condition then you would have coverage provided you meet whatever the coverage criteria of the policy are -3 months of conservative treatment, symptoms of a 1 year duration or more etc.
Insurance coverage of congenital breast asymmetry
In the vast majority of instances in which I have submitted claims for congenital breast asymmetry, the benefits have been denied by the insurance company despite being supported by the patients internist, family practitioner, psychologist, and gynecologist.
