Insurance does not cover most labiaplasties
Medical insurance covers the treatment of labial and vulvar diseases. While labiaplasty may occasionally be done to treat diseases that involve the labia (like cancer, hidradenitis, etc), most insurance companies will balk at covering the procedure for symptoms limited to discomfort or appearance issues. If you wish to undergo a labiaplasty for these common symptoms, you can usually obtaining financing through several national lenders or get a loan from a credit union if you have decent credit.

Does insurance cover labiaplasty?
Usually it does not, as typically the concerns are cosmetic in nature and not functional. In some cases where real symptoms are problematic a claim can be submitted, but it is difficult to get approval. Good luck!
I have had success getting insurance to cover labiaplasty. This was with TriCare Prime.
In most cases this is "cash pay" and isn't indicated based on your insurance company's requirements.
The cost is usually $3-4,000

Labiaplasty and insurance
In my experience, insurance will often cover labiaplasty in teenagers but not that often after women become sexually active or have babies.

Hello! Thank you for your question! Surgical procedures for aesthetic
purposes, to improve appearance, are not covered by insurance.
Typically, these as well as complications resulting from such procedures
are the responsibility of the patient. Procedures that are meant to
correct functional issues and those which cause health-related issues
should be covered by your insurance as a medical necessity, with proper
examination and documentation. Some insurance plans have exclusion
criteria for certain procedures. Also, it is an obligation of the
surgeon not to attempt to authorize purely cosmetic procedures through
insurance. This is typically a cosmetic procedure and should not be covered. Discuss your issues and
complaints with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss these as
well as to examine and assist you in deciding which procedure(s) will be
the best for you.
Certainly, pay in advance prior to your surgical procedure and options
such as financing are available if you qualify. Hope that this helps!
