Lipoma Treatment and Insurance Coverage

Lipoma Treatment and Insurance CoverageAn interesting and often overlooked topic is РDo insurance companies cover lipoma removal procedures? These procedures can be costly, especially if you have multiple lipomas to remove. The short answer is that if the lipoma is being removed for cosmetic reason, your insurance company may not cover it. So before approaching you doctor to remove a lipoma, check to see if you are covered by your insurer. You may want to craft your resin for the surgery according to your insurers guidelines and coverage.

Almost all insurers will cover lipoma removal if it is due to health complications such as pain, restriction of movement, infection or any health related complication. It’s important to note that most cases where lipomas are surgically removed are for cosmetic reasons. So insurance companies are usually wary of fraudulent claims that may come in for lipoma surgery. It’s best to talk to your doctor and get your doctor’s advice on how to proceed.

Removal of a lipoma is often quite simple if the lipoma is small and easy to access. The operation is usually done on an outpatient basis under local anesthetic. A small incision is made on the skin over the lipoma and the lipoma is literally squeezed out like a pimple. If the lipoma is in a difficult to reach place or close to sensitive organs and structures like the spin or neck, the surgery maybe much more complicated and require planning and a followup appointment.
