Will my BCBS PPO Alabama insurance cover a breast reduction?
Doctor Answers 2
BSBS of AL does cover breast reductions assuming you meet their criteria. You can call your insurance carrier and ask them to provide you an explanation of what they require for breast reduction. Don't accept the answer that "if it is medically necessary we will cover it". Ask for their specific criteria so that you can determine if they may consider it for you. They can probably refer you to a link on their website that discusses that subject.The plastic surgeons in our area also know how to interact with BCBS to request a determination. Any plastic surgeon in those areas should be able to help assuming they are part of the BCBS PPO network.Good Luck
