Insurance for top surgery
This is a very frustrating situation. Sometimes the denial can be overturned by a letter of appeal from either your primary care physician or the plastic surgeon who is planning on performing the top surgery.
Problems with insurance coverage
There are many problems with insurance coverage of transgender surgery, even when the policy specifically states that the procedure is covered. We have become very frustrated with the insurance companies callous approach to this situation. Be sure to get everything in writing and prepare for stormy seas.
