Rhinoplasty And Insurance Coverage

Will my insurance cover my rhinoplasty? Rhinoplasty is quite expensive and I would like to know if my insurance will take care of it.

Yes and no. Yes if the surgery will be done for medical reasons. If your problem is of fictional nature like difficulty of breathing, you're covered. Most insurance agencies will agree to cover the procedure to correct this problem. Not breathing well through your nose is a common problem. Fortunately, nasal breathing is easily improved.

However, if your nose problem is mainly appearance, probably not. I doubt your health care provider will cover surgical enhancement surgeries. Most centers specializing in surgery are not covered by medical insurance. They mostly cover hospital-based surgeries.
