I've had vitiligo for a few years now and it's getting worse. I want to try some treatments to see if I can get rid of it or at least stop it from continuing to get worse, but I'm afraid I won't be able to afford it because from what I understand vitiligo requires long-term treatment. Does insurance normally cover treatment for vitiligo?

Insurance will generally cover the medical treatment of vitiligo including topical treatments. However, coverage of laser or IPL treatment of vitiligo is problematic. This would depend on the individual company. I have found that about half of companies will cover such treatment.
