Insurance Coverage of Tummy Tuck
Medical insurance companies do not pay for cosmetic surgery and restrict coverage of some non-cosmetic operations. Although most will partially pay for the repair of a Hernia, especially if it is well documented, they will never knowingly will pay for the repair of muscle separation which is the consequence of pregnancy and massive obesity.
