Will Medicaid Cover Breast Surgery After Pregnancy?

I had kids and my boobs changed. One is bigger than the other and they sag a lot and the nipples are very deformed.
I wanted to see if I can get medicaid to help with my breast? Is there any help out there for this?
Medicaid does not pay for cosmetic surgery
Although you describe your breasts as "deformed", virtually all insurance plans consider sagging and droopiness to be cosmetic problems. Insurance companies, including government-sponsored programs such as Medicaid or Medicare, do not cover cosmetic procedures. If it bothers you tremendously, many plastic surgeons participate with third-party financing companies to help make surgery more affordable.
Hope this helps. Best of luck.
Medicaid for Cosmetic Surgery
This would be considered cosmetic surgery and insurance companies do not cover cosmetic procedures. In fact some insurances would go as far as not to cover any complications that can occur from cosmetic procedures.
Hope that helps.

Unfortunately there is liitle to no chance of having this covered as it is considered cosmetic.

Breast reconstruction for deformities or after mastectomy can be submitted to insurance.

Medicaid coverage of breast implant surgery
