Yes, breast augmentation is considered elective cosmetic surgery. He should inquire of the insurance provider whether specific description of the surgery is required to apply for benefits.
This is elective surgery and should be treated as such. Disability benefits do not apply. You need one week off.
The procedure you are having is considered elective. It will depend on the specifics of the STD policy that you have as to whether or not they will still offer benefits if the surgery is elective.
Hello bunni. Good luck on your upcoming breast augmentations surgery! The laws may work different there in BC than they do in Arizona. I suggest you speak with your plastic surgeon's office about whether you can get some short term benefits for the breast augmentation recuperation. They would know what works best in BC based on previous cases they've done. Best, Dr. ALDO
I am afraid they may not pay you for the time off as it is elective cosmetic,and not of a medical neccessity
Breast enlargement with implants to treat hypomastia is considered elective surgery, therefore you may not be able to obtain short term disability. Not sure what the policies for this in Canada are.Best wishes,Dr. Ravi Somayazula
Breast augmentation due to "small breasts" is considered elective. You could try to claim benefits but will not likely succeed. All the best
The diagnosis "breast hypoplasia" or "hypomastia" just means that the breasts are small. This is not a "medical condition" that requires covered benefits.
Breast augmentation is generally considered elective and not medically necessary, with some exceptions. Your short term disability carrier will likely deny this claim, but doesn't hurt to try. Just be prepared that they deny.
