Question:

Is plastic surgery cover by Blue shield PPO insurance?


Answers:

Hi Sal-
I am a plastic surgeon in Houston and can tell you with confidence that only plastic surgery that is deemed medically necessary for your health (such as reconstructions after accidents or after a cancer surgery) will be covered by any insurance.

There are some shady doctors that will tell the insurance company they are doing a medically necessary procedure (like removing infected tissue) but really will perform a cosmetic procedure for you. Stay away from these doctors!! If caught, not only will the doctor be charged for fraud- but you will too!! If you think plastic surgery is expensive, wait until you have to hire a lawyer to keep you out of jail!

Good luck
