When Will Health Insurance Cover Your Nose Job?

Getting rhinoplasty, whether for cosmetic or functional reasons, can be a costly procedure. However, there are times when your health insurance will cover the cost of your nose job, at least to an extent.

1. Fractured Nose

If your nose has been fractured or broken and you need to have it operated on, then you will likely receive the okay from a surgical specialist who will notate your rhinoplasty surgery as covered by insurance.

2. Cosmetic Surgery

Just getting a nose job for cosmetic reasons is not likely something covered by your insurance. You can, however, combine a cosmetic surgery with, let’s say, a fractured nose rhinoplasty surgery to get it fixed. While you’ll still have to pay out of pocket for some of the surgery, you will at least have the anesthesiology portion paid for by the health insurance company.

3. Other Surgically Required Conditions

There are a number of other conditions that are covered by health insurance, including nasal valve stenosis, a deviated septum, and an enlarged turbinate — all of which must be diagnosed by a surgical specialist. These are considered conditions that require surgical rhinoplasty to improve the functioning of the nose and nasal passageways.
