Some Cigna PPO insurance plans do not cover breast reduction specifically. We saw a patient in the office and tried to obtain pre-approval for a breast reduction. Medical necessity was clearly in play in this slender 5 foot tall woman with size EE breasts. The insurer’s representatives did state however a month into the process that her insurance plan specifically excluded the benefit of breast reduction.
Watch your plan specifics when you sign up for that health insurance. When you’d like to use it it might not be there for you.
