Does Medicare Cover Plastic Surgery
If you’re getting cosmetic surgery to make changes to your looks, you’ll pay for the procedure yourself. But, Medicare covers a portion of costs for plastic surgery if it’s necessary. Examples of this are reconstruction surgery after an accident or severe burns. Or, blepharoplasty if drooping skin blocks your eyes and your vision suffers. Also, to keep your costs lower, we suggest making sure your doctor accepts Medicare assignment. There are several other examples of coverage for plastic surgery that will be approved due to medical necessity. In some cases, your doctor needs to write a letter to explain the procedure’s medical necessity.
