Call them and ask what their coverage is, how they cover, what they cover, etc. Usually there is an 800 number or something that you can call on the back of your insurance card. They would be able to help you best.

It depends on where you live. Cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery can range from $4,000 up to $21,000. Insurance may cover a portion of the cost if there is a medical reason for the surgery, such as a septoplasty in conjunction with the rhinoplasty.

You need to check with your doctor to get a more accurate price as far as cost to you for this surgery. Cost all depends on what type of insurance coverage you have, what they cover, and what they won't cover. Sometimes if you are lucky you can get it 100% covered by your insurance company including the cosmetic surgery afterwards to remove the excess skin that will be left behind if your doctor deems your surgery medically necessary.

If you have private insurance, find out if they will cover this surgery, if you don't have private insurance, and want to purchase some, you need to find out how much of the surgery would they cover and is it going to cost you more for the insurance or just pay for the surgery out of pocket.

If the laser surgery was to correct near or far sightedness, most insurance companies do not cover it and you will have to pay for this yourself. If the laser surgery was for some other problem, like blurriness following cataract surgery, your insurer will most likely cover the cost.

Because breast augmentation is an elective and cosmetic surgical procedure, medical insurance carriers typically do not cover the cost. The only case they may assume the financial responsibility is when the augmentation/implant is part of a breast reconstructive surgery following a masectomy or other breast trauma.

Morbid obesity is a life-threatening disorder, so some insurance companies will pay for the procedure. If your insurance will cover some or most of the cost, your total cost will be greatly reduced. If your insurance will not cover the surgery, or you do not have surgery, some doctors will finance patients with approved credit. Without insurance, the total cost can be from $20,000 to $35,000. Gastric bypass price depends on which procedure is best for you, your doctor and your location.

AnswerIt depends on your insurance and reason for having the procedure. Your nose job may be covered by your insurance if your procedure is enhancing the function of your nose (ex: relieving swelling, extreme sinus pressure, or breathing problems, etc). If your procedure is purely cosmetic, the chances of your procedure being covered is very low. Consult your plastic surgeon and your insurance company to determine which financial plan you'll have to follow.Nearly all plastic or cosmetic surgery is considered elective, which means health insurance does not pay for it. This means you need to have a grasp of the full cost of nose job surgery.

Laser cosmetic surgery is less invasive, more precise and heals more quickly than conventional cosmetic surgery. It also reduces the time one must stay in a facility reducing the overall cost.

Bariatric surgery is a procedure that can cost over $18,000. Insurance coverage of this procedure varies, but more and more insurance providers are covering a sizable portion of the cost, while some policies offer full coverage for the surgery. Medicare will cover bariatric surgery for individuals who meet certain criteria. Medicaid coverage varies from state to state. Private insurance, like Medicare, may cover the surgery only after specific criteria is met, such as having a weight-related illness like Type 2 diabetes.

Cosmetic surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures from the extremely minor to the deadly serious. A major procedure will cost you something like 5000 to 7000 dollars just generally speaking.
