Can Health Insurance Cover the Cost of My Eyelid Lift?
For the most part, your eyelid lift isn’t covered by health insurance coverage. However, there are exceptions to the rule. For example, if your doctor or ophthalmologist believes that your vision is significantly impacted by loose eyelid skin – to the point where it impacts your quality of life – your health insurance may cover some or all of the cost of your eyelid lift.
If you think this is the case, be sure to discuss your concerns with your doctor, ophthalmologist, and/or the plastic surgeon who will be performing the surgery. Together, you and your healthcare team can work on a blepharoplasty plan that works best for you and your vision.
