Thanks so much

Will Insurance Pay for my Nasal Surgery?
Insurance companies typically pay for correction of breathing problems. Your pictures show multiple anatomic reasons for your nasal obstruction including septal deviation, almost total obstruction of your right nostril, as well as nasal valve collapse. After consultation the surgeon's office can help you determine if your insurance company will cover some of your surgical charges.
