Who Should Foot the Bill for Revision Rhinoplasty?
About two months ago I had an open Rhinoplasty to fix a deviated septum. It seems to have fixed the problem, however my nose was supposed to be straightened but is actually worse now and more crooked than before. There is only a little swelling but even my surgeon can see how crooked it is and knows it's not the swelling.
I'm from Canada and the first surgery was covered by the government being that it was a health issue. Now my surgeon told me yesterday that the revision to fix my more crooked nose may not be covered because my septum deviation is fixed. I can see the government saying "you fixed the deviated septum and screwed something up so why should we pay for that".
If that were the case the surgeon should foot the bill I think because I was not told before hand that if something went wrong then too bad for me or that there would be a chance I can't get it fixed or I'd never have had it done. So in the end someone’s paying for it because this was something that went wrong, not something that just naturally occurred.
