Which Acne Treatments Are Covered by Insurance?

I'll pay if I need to but it would be nice to know which options we can try first through our insurance.

Most treatments covered for acne include medically based treatments. However, there is a code entitled "acne surgery," which includes extractions that some insurances cover.

The best thing to do is discuss this with your dermatologist.
