Fees vary depending on the expertise of the surgeon.  The fee may also vary depending on the location and size of the lipoma. 

To remove these growths is a medically necessary procedure and should be reimbursed by your health insurance company.

Yes anthem should cover. Check your deductible though. If done in office no preauthorization is needed. If done in operating room u might need pre auth.
