For a lot of people wanting to get a tummy tuck, the costs of the procedure usually discourage them. A lot of health insurance companies will not cover the cost of any type of cosmetic surgery procedures, so it can be extremely challenging to get your tummy tuck covered by insurance.
If you cannot afford the procedure, here are some things to keep in mind to help make it more affordable for you.
Get a Physical
Visit your primary care physician to get a physical done. During your visit, ask your doctor is there are any side effects that your abdominal region may be causing you to experience. If there are any sort of health issues (such as an umbilical hernia, for example) that can be linked to undergoing a tummy tuck procedure, insurance may agree to cover it.
Contact your health insurance company and ask them to send you any info regarding tummy tucks and other plastic surgery procedures.
Some companies are willing to pay a certain amount of coverage to their patients that are suffering from health issues of the abdominal areas. Other companies might be unwilling to shell out any money for cosmetic procedures, under any circumstance.
