I have a changing birthmark on my shoulder that I know needs to be looked at, and i'm wondering if the cost of removing it will most likely be covered by insurance. If not, what kind of cost would I be looking at?
Insurance and Birthmarks
Most removal of birthmarks are not covered by insurance companies unless there are pre-cancerous or cancerous cells found in the tissue. Once a biopsy is proven to be pre- cancerous or cancerous your physicians office can apply the claim to your insurance carrier.
