I was hit in the face with a bar stool, and the bump on my nose has gotten bigger. Do you think OHIP will cover a rhinoplasty?

Cosmetic rhinoplasty for dorsal hump removal

 There is no medical necessity to remove a dorsal hump for cosmetic purposes, so medical insurance will most likely not cover that procedure. A rhinoplasty procedure is considered cosmetic and must be paid for by the patient.
