Will My Insurance Company Pay for My Breast Reduction Surgery?
At first glance, the financial process of paying for breast reduction surgery may seem intimidating. This is completely understandable. The good news is that breast reduction surgery is one of the few cosmetic procedures that is often covered by health care insurance companies. The first step is to contact your insurance company. Most insurance companies will cover some, if not all of your medical bills for breast reduction surgery if it is determined that the procedure is being performed for valid medical reasons. Some of these reasons include excessive back and neck pain, skin problems, posture issues and shoulder pain caused by bra straps.
Women often choose to have breast reduction surgery for other reasons, usually having to do with appearance, confidence and their ability to engage in their favorite physical activities. These reasons are equally valid and are often taken into account by insurance companies as well.
