Health Insurance companies have very different policies and practices about plan coverage for breast reduction surgery (also known as reduction Mammoplasty). Insurance companies carefully study each claim on a case-by-case basis in order to determine whether the breast reduction surgery is being performed for purely aesthetic (cosmetic) purposes or if the breast reduction procedure will be performed to alleviate medical conditions caused by the breast size. All health insurance carriers require that the removed breast tissue weighed as most coverage plans require a minimum amount to be removed in order for the patient to qualify for coverage. Some companies also look at the amount of tissue excised against the patient’s height and weight. This is one of the reasons that patients are advised by Dr. Roger J. Oldham to lose any excess weight before surgery.
