Botox for facial palsy - getting insurance coverage
- First, be sure your insurance does cover botox for your condition.
- If you are sure the answer is 'yes', then you need to see one of the plastic or facial plastic surgeons on your insurance panel (network).
- FYI - plastic and facial plastic surgeons are two separate specialties.
- A plastic surgeon is specifically trained in plastic surgery which includes all aspects of cosmetic surgery. Facial plastic surgery is an ENT subspecialty - a surgeon trained in ENT who takes additional training in cosmetic facial surgery.

Botox covered by insurance
Thank you for your question msanchez41. Sometimes Botox is covered by a person's insurance for medical treatments, not cosmetic treatments. For my patients I have them check with their insurance to confirm if Botox is covered by their insurance. If so then my patients will find a doctor that accepts their insurance. Please consult a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
