Does insurance cover removal of deflated breast implants?
Health insurance coverage varies greatly from company to company and from individual coverages.You will need to contact your provider to find out if you are covered and the extint of the coverage. Also, contact your surgeon who did your implants to find out who the manufacturer of the implants were.Sometimes the manufacturer will replace a deflated implant at no cost for the implant , you still have to pay for the surgery.

Generally, no. Cosmetic surgery is not usually covered under most insurance plans. (If we're talking about reconstruction after breast cancer treatment that's different.) Wha…t's more, any treatment of complications may not be covered by your health insurance. Typically, insurance companies will not cover breast augmentation or any reoperations and additional doctor visits following augmentation. Your insurance company might even increase your premiums or drop your coverage. Before surgery, you may wish to get answers to the following questions in writing from your insurance companyDoes my policy cover the costs of the implant surgery, the implant, the anesthesia, and other related hospital costs? To what extent?Does it cover removal and replacement of the implants if this becomes necessary? To what extent?Does it cover the cost of detecting or treating a complication as a result of either the implant or the reconstruction? To what extent?Will there be an increase in my insurance premium? To what extent?Will future coverage be affected? To what extent?
There is no straightforward answer to this question, but removal of breast implants can be much more complicated and expensive than the original surgery, especially if one of …the implants has broken. Some surgeons are very experienced at removal and are skilled at getting the best possible cosmetic result, so it may be worthwhile looking for a good removal surgeon rather than going for the cheapest you can find. Be wary of getting saline breast implants. The doctors don't tell you, but rupture is common. I have had mine "Pop" three times. The leak is usually slow. If you believe one or both of your breast implants are shrinking there is probably a rupture. I suggest going to the cosmetic surgeon who did the initial implants ( if you liked the result prior to the rupture). Remember to listen to your body. We know our bodies better than any doctor. So if your doctor disagrees about there being a rupture, get a second opinion.

Is it medically necessary?

According to a 2008 survey by the National Association of Dental Plans, there are 8 or 9 carriers the include coverage for dental implants in their group dental insuranc…e products. Sometimes it is part of base coverage and sometimes an additional benefit that your employer must request. So check your policy and if it is not covered, ask you employer if it can be added. Implants are not generally a part of individual dental insurance coverage. But, discounts on implants may be a part of discount dental plans that you can buy on an individual basis. To find an individual discount dental plan, go to the NADP website--www.nadp.org--and use the Dental Plan Directory to look up the names of companies that provide "discount dental plans" in your state.
I think that breast reconstruction using existing body tissue is the preferred treatment but I expect implants are also an option
Typically no. It is an elective procedural (likely) that was not covered under insurance, and as such they do not pay for complications that arise from them. This may not be t…rue in the case where the augmentation was secondary to mastectomy. There may be a warranty on the implant itself.
The cost to remove breast implants is generally in the region of £ 2500. The operation is not cheap because you still require a general Anaesthetic and an overnight stay in h…ospital. The operation will cost more than this if you elect to have new implants put in at the same time. At the moment, there are many women having P.I.P breast implants removed. Most of them want new implants as they do not want to be left with smaller breasts. Clinics are offeirng to do these at reduced prices , although the Government are putting clinics under pressure to do them for free. If you think you have P.I.P implants you should talk to the clinic who performed your operation and see what can be done and for what cost
If enlargement is part of breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, health plans may pay for some or all of it
A couple of insurance plans will but most likely no and if you are born without the tooth it might be different for you but when i was told i had to get a implant they told me… it was not covered under almost every policy but it changed cause i never had a tooth or a root.
