Is Blepharoplasty covered by Insurance?
August 30, 2013
There is a possibility your insurance policy provides some coverage for blepharoplasty if the reason you are getting upper eyelid surgery is your vision. Although blepharoplasty provides cosmetic benefits, it also eliminates the sagging skin that can interfere with your vision. Such a motivation for blepharoplasty may be considered medically necessary, in which case your insurance may cover the procedure. If you are seeking blepharoplasty for cosmetic reasons alone, then your insurance company may decide not to cover it. During your consultation at our practice, we discuss facial surgery costs, your insurance coverage, and our financing options. Eyelid surgery is not only great for your field of vision, it also rejuvenates the appearance of aging eyes by creating a more youthful, more alert appearance. To help more people access blepharoplasty, we try to keep our costs reasonable and we offer financing through CareCredit®. CareCredit® is a credit card for medical and cosmetic expenses. We can help you apply to find out if you qualify. To learn more about Philadelphia blepharoplasty, please contact John J.W. Lee, MD, FACS, to schedule a consultation.Blog
