Is Butt Augmentation Covered by Insurance?

Doctor Answers 3

You must be kidding me.

Insurance won't pay for needed care - this is elective cosmetic surgery - you want it, you pay for it.  Insurance companies do not believe that a small butt is a disease.

Not likely for insurance to cover butt augmentation

In an era where inssurance companies deny breast cancer reconstruction in some cases, it is very unlikely they will cover buttock augmentation for cosmetic reasons. It is always form versus function. Best of luck!

Buttock augmentation is not generally covered by insurance

No this is not a procedure that is typically covered by insurance. Generally, the insurance covers only procedures that are considered functional and it would be extremely unusual that a buttock augmentation will provide improved function.
