Will Insurance Cover Labiaplasty

In most cases, insurance will not cover labiaplasty because it is considered a cosmetic procedure. Insurance companies typically only cover procedures that are deemed medically necessary. Labiaplasty is often performed for aesthetic reasons, such as to reduce the size of the labia minora or to improve their appearance. However, there are some cases where insurance may cover labiaplasty if it is deemed medically necessary. For example, if a woman has labiaplasty to correct a congenital abnormality or to treat a condition that is causing her pain or discomfort, such as recurrent urinary tract infections or difficulty with sexual intercourse, her insurance may cover the procedure.

Here are some of the factors that insurance companies will consider when deciding whether or not to cover labiaplasty:

  • The reason for the surgery
  • The severity of the condition
  • The potential risks and benefits of the surgery
  • The availability of other treatment options

If you are considering having labiaplasty, it is important to talk to your doctor about your insurance coverage. You can also contact your insurance company directly to ask about their specific policy on labiaplasty.
