How Does Insurance Coverage Cover Breast Reduction Surgery?
I'm 16, 120 lbs, 5'3", with 32DD breasts who wants to go down to a32B. I've found a surgeon, and gotten a consult. The plastic surgeon said that I would have to have more tissue taken out than I have in order for insurance to cover it. I sent in a pre-approval request, made out by my general practitioner, to my insurance company, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Alabama. Does insurance pay for the surgery before it is done, or do you pay out of pocket and they reimburse you?
