Are cosmetic procedures covered by health insurance?
In most cases, health insurance plans will not cover elective procedures. Procedures that are performed strictly for cosmetic purposes are not usually covered by most insurance companies. However, if services are being performed for the treatment of a medical condition, coverage may apply. For instance, patients interested in a chemical peel can use them to address conditions such as rosacea or acne. In this case, coverage may apply. Individuals using chemical peels strictly for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles or poor texture and tone may not be able to apply health insurance benefits.
