Answer . Medicare will usually pay for services only if they are considered medically necessary. This would clearly not include cosmetic surgery.
Answer . I'd venture to say no, unless something happened to your butt where you NEED the surgery done. If it's not a necessity then Insurance normally won't cover it (and… necessity doesn't mean it's cosmetically necessary in your mind).
Answer to Does Medicaid cover braces In certain situations medi-caid will cover braces. Each state has different guidelines for what is considered medically necessary. Some o…f them are very specific giving point values to deviations and requiring a certain point total to qualify. Medicaid will almost never cover braces for adults. And they also will not cover cases where there are still baby teeth present. If you google medi-caid dental orthodontic coverage and then the name of your state you might be able to find out the specific guidelines for approval for your state. I have seen people who looked like they should be covered as medically necessary who were denied and I have seen others be covered that you might not expect to be covered but it was covered due to it causing a speech problem. In California they use a worksheet called the handicapping labo-lingual deviation (HLD) index scoresheet to determine coverage. google handicapping labo-lingual deviation (HLD) index, and you should find some good info. They may use the same worksheets in other states too, I am just familiar with California's worksheet. I know that it is different from the qualifications were when I lived in Minnesota. The Minnesota ones were not quite as strict.

Unfortunately it won't. You should be able to find a .pdf of the covered medications on the Medicaid website for the state you have it through. I have it in Illinois and I hav…e to purchase generic Adderall because it isn't covered. However, if you go to a warehouse like Costco or Sams Club (or even Walmart) your cost for generic Adderall will be rather minimal. I paid $30 this past weekend at Costco for 60 tablets of 15mg'.

In Louisiana it covers pretty much everything. The only things I can think of that it doesn't are 3/4d ultrasounds and circumcision if it's a boy.
