In brief: No

They may cover an operation called a panniculectomy which just removes the excess skin.
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) includes a panniculectomy and a procedure to tighten your tummy on the inside (plication). To get coverage you need to have rashes below the skin treated by your doctor.

In brief: not usually

However in conditions which the abdomen hangs down below the pubis, to the genital area this may be considered a medical reason for removing the excess of dominant issue.
