Tummy Tuck

Does Insurance Cover a Tummy Tuck?

Insurance companies generally do not cover cosmetic surgery that's done without a medical reason. Yours might if you have a hernia that will be corrected through the procedure.

Before you decide whether to get a tummy tuck, contact your insurance company so you're clear on what's covered and what's not. If you think you can make a case that you need the procedure for medical reasons, your surgeon may be able to help you by writing a letter to your insurer.
