A 21-year-old female asked:

what's the cost of one veneer? can insurance cover it?

3 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Aalam Samsavar
Dentistry 35 years experience
It depends: The cost of veneer depends on the material used ( a direct vs. indirect veneer), the condition of the existing tooth ( decay, need for root canal, broken, need to have fillings replaced) and the color ( does this tooth or others needs to be whitened). Therefore the cost can range from $500-$3500+ Insurances generally do not cover any procedures done only for cosmetic reason.
Dr. Paul Grin
Pain Management 36 years experience
$800 - $2,000: On average, veneers can cost anywhere between $800 and $2,000 per tooth, depending on geographical location, individual cases and needs. Some insurance plan will cover this procedure and some will not.
Dr. Arnold Malerman
Orthodontics 53 years experience
Veneers: $500-2500. Works of art, not one-size-fits-all. Depends on your geographic area, skill of the practitioner, size, color, accessibility, material used, amount of tooth preparation required, your opposing occlusion, etc. Insurance will cover if premium hared for that service. If not on the procedure list, will not be covered. See your Dentist for individualized answer.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Is the treatment for fibroids covered by insurance?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Susan Johnson
Gynecology 34 years experience
Yes: If you are having symptoms from your fibroids that require treatment than the condition is medically necessary and your insurance will cover it. Just how much coverage you have depends upon the type of insurance plan you have and factors such as how much of your deductible you have already met for the year. You can probably check the details of coverage through your insurance company's website.

How do I afford herpes medication without insurance?

Go to free clinic: One possibility is to go to a free clinic. Other is to write to the pharmaceutical company so they can evaluate your income too see if you qualify. Anyway antivirals for herpes don't help too much. Only when pts have too many recurrences a year is worth it to take the medicine on a daily basis forever.

I don't have insurance and can't see a doctor. I found out I have hep c. What should I do to medicate my disease?

Dr. Jeffrey Juchau
Family Medicine 33 years experience
No insurance: You can still be seen by a doctor without insurance. You have a disease that is life threatening. You need to be treated early in its course to save your liver. There are many programs and many clinics where you can be treated for reduced cost. Many of us also give discounts for cash pay and will work with you to make payments. Don't use the excuse that you can't be seen without insurance.
