Dr. Blechman, Alina, Leah, and everyone on the plastics team made me feel completely at ease through the entire process. They worked with my insurance to ensure I was getting the best rate, and during appointments, they broke down how the surgery would go and answered any questions I had. Post breast reduction I have so much more energy, feel comfortable in my own skin, and can wear the clothes I want, none of this would have been possible without this surgery. If you are looking to get a breast reduction with a supportive team, I can’t recommend them enough! ~ Google
Will Insurance Cover My Breast Reduction Plastic Surgery?
Generally, many insurances will cover your breast reduction surgery if it’s for a medical necessity. However, medical insurance coverage is determined on a case to cases basis. The only way to know for certain if your breast reduction plastic surgery is covered by your insurance carrier is to contact your insurance company: if you are unsure how to do this, Breast Reduction Specialists of Los Angeles will happily contact your insurance company for you. Or please fill out the information on the Breast Reduction Specialists of Los Angeles insurance verification page and we will contact you directly to let you know if your particular insurance covers the surgery.
If your medical insurance policy does cover breast reduction surgery, there may be criteria that they will consider. The most common criteria that you can get insurance coverage for a breast reduction involves the following:
- There is a physiological functional impairment due to the excessive size and/or weight of the breasts, such as back, neck, or shoulder pain, shoulder grooving from bra straps, headaches, or rashes.
- Removal of a certain minimum amount of breast tissue based on your height and weight – we will discuss this with you during your consultation at our LA breast reduction center. In general, this requirement is satisfied by removing approximately 50% of the breast volume.
- The board certified LA plastic surgeon must provide an accurate diagnosis that you suffer from disabling or debilitating symptoms attributed directly to overly large breasts.
- You have tried conservative, non-surgical methods, such as physical therapy or over-the-counter pain medications for over three months to resolve your condition personally without success.
- Your plastic surgeon can and will provide photos that document your need for breast reduction surgery.
Another factor that you need to consider prior to understanding if you have insurance coverage for breast reduction plastic surgery is to determine if Breast Reduction Specialists of Los Angeles is in-network or out of network with your insurance policy. Our Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice participates in-network with United Healthcare (commercial plans) and Oxford (Freedom & Liberty networks) plans. We also have a great deal of experience and success in working with commercial out-of-network plans for either full or partial coverage, depending on your plan. Some insurance policies will only cover the breast reduction surgery (full or partial), but not the professional fee of the plastic surgery surgeon, which could affect the surgery cost. We are more than happy to check this information for you with your insurance carrier. It is ultimately each patient’s responsibility to understand and verify benefit coverage with their carrier. Our coordinators provide comprehensive insurance and financial consulting before and after your appointment to ensure each patient has their questions answered and feels confident in their decision to move forward.
