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.

Depressant: Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant. It eventually lowers your mood. The "buzz" that people feel when intoxicated is related to the lowering of inhibitions due to the depressant effect on the brain. Chronic alcoholics often need larger amounts of alcohol to achieve this effect which often lasts for a shorter period. This creates a vicious cycle and sustained abuse.

Insurance coverage: Cosmetic surgery is usually not coverd by insurance unless there is a functional component or the surgery is actually a reconstructive one such as following an accident or trauma. A doctor needs to have it evaluated and submit request for prior authorization.

A 37-year-old male asked:

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?

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.
