Insurance and labia surgery
Costs for #CosmeticLabiaplasty and #CosmeticFemaleSugery
#Costs will depend upon the specific surgery that is requested, type of anaesthesia, experience of the surgery, and geographic location.
Estimated fees can be found on Real Self, and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery websites.
You have to check with your carrier to get pre certification. Its unusual to be covered
Will Insurance Cover Labiaplasty?
Having your insurance pay for labiaplasty is rare but possible for patients with symptoms such as yours. It is important that your primary doctor or Ob/Gyn has documented your complaints over time.
If you are an adult but your insurance is under your parents it might still be possible for them to learn about the procedure. If you are a minor you will need their consent to do the surgery.
It is also important that you consult with an experienced plastic surgeon who can deliver the results you desire.
All the best to you.
