Gynecomastia insurance do they cover surgery?
You have been researching gynecomastia treatment and wondering if your surgery will be covered by health insurance. Gynecomastia is a medical term to describe swollen or enlarged breasts in men. According to Cleveland Clinic, gynecomastia is very common and affects approximately 50 to 65% of males. Even though this condition is experienced by many boys and men, gynecomastia surgery is usually considered a cosmetic procedure, which makes it ineligible for coverage in most cases.
How much does gynecomastia surgery cost?
The cost of gynecomastia surgery can vary greatly based on a variety of factors such as your surgeon’s experience in performing the procedure, the complexity of your case, and location of your surgery. The average cost of gynecomastia surgery ranges from $5,000 for a simple gynecomastia case to $12,000 or more for a complex case in Chicago, Illinois.
If you’re choosing to undergo a gynecomastia procedure, we offer several financing plans to help with the cost of your procedure.
Check with your insurance provider.
Individual health insurance plans and coverage differ greatly, therefore we recommend you call your gynecomastia insurance provider to determine if any part of your gyno procedure is eligible for coverage.
Our clinic does not accept gynecomastia insurance payments directly. The total cost of your gynecomastia procedure is due two weeks prior to your surgery date. If your health insurance plan provides reimbursement, our staff can assist with necessary medical records that may be requested by your health insurance company.
Are there available gynecomastia treatments without surgery?
If you are looking for non-surgical treatment options for gynecomastia, you may be able to try certain medications, testosterone replacement or hormone therapy, and making diet and lifestyle changes. However, depending on the severity of your condition, these treatments may not be effective as or get the results you want.
