Will Insurance cover my surgery?
If your requests are of a functional nature (for example, you cannot breathe through your nose), many insurance companies will cover the part of the nose surgery or to address deformities or breathing complications related to a nasal fracture that is required to correct these problems.
However, any requests that relate simply to change of appearance are generally not covered by insurance companies, and do require a cosmetic surgery fee.
Functional rhinoplasty or septoplasty, the surgery designed to correct documented breathing problems, may be covered by your health insurance. This is one of the few plastic surgery procedures we can say that about: there is a chance your insurance will cover your procedure, at least in part. Technically, functional rhinoplasty is not cosmetic surgery, since it’s done to correct breathing issues that may be due to a deviated septum or other physical problems with your nose. You may submit information regarding your insurance carrier to our Patient/Insurance coordinator department. Our staff without cost to you will verify your insurance coverage and determine if your insurance covers the procedure.
