Tummy tucks are cosmetic procedures and are not covered by insurance. Sometimes insurance will cover a panniculectomy, if there is a large skin overhang, but it is impossible to tell without a consultation
Hello, thanks for your question. Insurance do not cover plastic surgeries, you have to get a personal evaluation with a board certified plastic surgeon...
Usually insurance do not cover "plastic surgery procedures", but you should ask a surgeon to evaluate your condition in case you have deformation or problems due to your prior surgery to qualify the Tummy Tuck as reconstructive surgery, which is covered.
Unfortunately, insurance does not cover a tummy tuck. Occasionally with documentation of recurrent infection they will pay for a panniculectomy (simply removing loose skin).
Thank you for your question. A Tummy Tuck is considered a cosmetic procedure and therefore not covered by insurance. However, most plastic surgeons will offer financing options. I would recommend that you consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an in-person examination and a discussion of your goals and options. Best wishes.
As far as i know a TT is considered 100% cosmetical. Even procedure in the past will not rectify a TT covered by insurance. You can always consult with your primary physician or a plastic surgeon. Best of luck
Occasional an insurance company will cover this procedure if there is a medical & functional problem associated with it, but in most cases, it is not covered.
With the advent of obamacare less and less is covered.Many insurance plans will not even cover breast reduction surgery.You can always try to have your surgeon write a letter.
Unfortunately, tummy tuck is deemed completely cosmetic and your past medical/surgical history would not change this. The standard insurance companies use is functional medical necessity.
Thanks for your inquiry. Happy to hear about your successful course after colon cancer. I do not think your insurance company will help you cover the costs of a tummy tuck. Good luck.
