Is breast reduction covered under my health insurance? Do I get any other breast reduction coverage?

I would expect that this would depend on the reason for the reduction - is it necessary for medical reasons, or is this for cosmetic purposes?

I'm not thinking of a reduction following any medical advice.

This would then be an elective surgery and most likely not covered. You need to check with your insurance company.

Breast reduction surgery is commonly covered if a physician states that it would help alleviate existing medical conditions such as back or neck strains (especially if the insurer is paying for other treatments as a result).



If simply for cosmetic reasons, or to be able to buy smaller size clothing, it will not be covered, as others have posted.

Well...I won't call the person a "Boob" for asking that question.
