Insurance Issue
« on: October 04, 2012, 05:45:15 AM »
Hello dear friends!
I want to know that whether we can insure ourself before breast operation because most of the policies are active after some duration of time. Is there any policy which can cover after a week after getting it?

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Welcome to our discussion forum. Insure for what? What are you trying to get covered? I do not understand you question about Breast Reduction Surgery.

Is this about Should Insurance Cover Breast Reduction Surgery?

Hope this helps,

I mean to say that whether it cover after surgery? Because most of the insurance policy not cover the previous problems.

Sorry, still not clear. Cover what after surgery? The surgery itself, a complication, time off or what are you asking about being covered? Also what type of breast surgery?

I mean to say that if we have previous problem and we avail an insurance policy then whether it cover it or not if surgery or such other treatment done for that problem?

Sorry, you are speaking with non specifics about a topic that varied so much and was managed by my office staff for an office now closed. Each company seemed to change what they covered and did not.

Just not a solution for more of an answer that should be directed to the doctor you are working with. Speaking generalities about vague questions has little value.

Hope this helps,
