1. Insurance May Cover All or Part
Your insurance is probably the type of insurance that does not cover cosmetic procedures. That is pretty standard across all insurance plans. Cosmetic procedures are known as elective surgeries – or surgeries that are not necessary for your health.
That means that most insurance companies will deny any claims that appear to be for cosmetic purposes. This is led many people to believe that they cannot get their insurance company to pay for eyelid surgery.
However, there are some cases in which your insurance company may pay anyway, even though it is a cosmetic procedure. For example, if your eyelid surgery is done in any part to improve your sight, then your insurance company might just pay.
The cost of the surgery depends upon the extent of it, whether you have the upper-lower done at the same time and where you have the procedure done.
