Many patients are aware that insurance companies do not cover “cosmetic” procedures. However, there are many plastic surgery procedures that correct or restore a functional impairment and are therefore considered medically necessary. These reconstructive procedures are accompanied by a positive aesthetic outcome and bridge the gap between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
Dr. Jeremy Nikfarjam and Dr. Micheline Goulart of New You Plastic Surgery are board-certified plastic surgeons that work with many insurance companies. Out-of-network insurance benefits help with many of the surgeries they perform due to their restorative or corrective nature. Many insurance plans offer out-of-network benefits for the following surgeries listed below:
*Do not assume that your health insurance will not cover or help with the expenses of the procedure you need. Some plastic surgery procedures may have aesthetically beneficial results while at the same time addressing the medical issues that need attention.
If you are considering a plastic surgery procedure, it is essential that you know the person performing the surgery is well-qualified and board certified. You also want to be assured that the surgeon has the skills and expertise to carry out the procedure and deliver the best cosmetic results possible. When you require plastic surgery, contact Dr. Nikfarjam or Dr. Goulart, and schedule a consultation appointment.
