Will Insurance Cover Diastasis Recti if Causing Lumbar Spine Issues?
I have a very bad diastasis recti from pregnancy. I can press down with my whole fist and, in a mini-crunch, my ab walls will actually wrap around my fist. I have been told that insurance won't cover an abdominoplasty, so I resigned to trying to save $$$ for the procedure some time down the line. However, my lumbar spine is deteriorating (incl. herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, etc.) from severe hyperlordosis. The hyperlordosis is caused by the abdominal wall defect. Will insurance cover?
Abdominoplasty is ALWAYS a cosmetic procedure
It is best for you to check with you insurance company to see if repair of diastasis recti could possibly be a covered benefit.
