Insurance for Facial Feminization and Other Secondary Procedures
Even insurance plans that seem transgender-friendly on the surface may have hidden exclusions that will limit your coverage. As you look for the best insurance option for you, keep in mind that many insurance companies that provide coverage for “top surgery” – i.e. breast augmentation for transgender females and reconstructive mastectomy for transgender males – may draw distinctions between what is and is not medically necessary.
While top surgery may be covered, facial feminization, rhinoplasty, tracheal shave, and other secondary procedures may be considered purely cosmetic and therefore excluded. Our insurance advocate can help you to find the coverage that is best for you.
