Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?
Insurance companies have a number of requirements and a Board Certified #Plastic Surgeon will be able to determine if you are a candidate for reduction. Pre-authorization by an insurance company is required prior to surgery, and the process takes approximately one month. Your plastic surgeon who can contact your insurance company for authorization following a #breast examination to document of your symptoms. You should also consider seeing your primary physician for an examination and documentation as well.
Breast Reduction - Insurance Coverage
Thank you for your question! It will depend on your insurance plan and policy. Many insurance providers like to see that you've attempted 3 months of conservative treatment and this would need to be document by a physician. Your height, weigh, BSA and history of symptoms will be evaluated to determine eligibility. As always, consults with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon once you're ready to start the insurance process. They will be able to verify your insurance benefits and give you answers specific to your situation. Best of luck.

Insurance coverage for breast reduction
Coverage is insurance specific and varies. Meeting with a plastic surgeon will be the best way to know a more definitive answer as it depends on many different variables including your height and weight, estimated weight of tissue to be removed, and associated symptoms. It can also be helpful to bring any documentation you have of other treatments you have sought out for your complaints. Good luck!
