I have spinal stenosis and advanced degenerative disc disease. I am also diabetic. To help avoid medical problems in the future, wouldn't insurance be more likely to pay for this surgery?
Would Insurance Cover Abdominoplasty for All of the Diseases I Have Listed?

Most insurance companies feel a tummy tuck is not medically indicated. They deem the procedure as cosmetic. Please talk to your insurance carrier to explore your options. But, I'm almost certain your tummy tuck will not be covered by your insurance.
Call your insurance agent to see if they cover abdominoplasty.
Call your agent should establish whether or not there is even the possibility of having abdominoplasty covered. Different plans offered different coverage so it's impossible to give you a precise answer.
