      You are correct Sandee. Most insurances do not cover cosemtic surgery unless it is needed due to an accident or something like that. In other words, a NECESSARY surgery.

      It depends on what type of costemic billing you are doing., Medicare will only pay for certian ones like blephroplasty. Most cosmetic billing is on a cash pay basis.

      surgery. I think you have an advantage if you already know something
      about billing for surgery. Best of luck! Diana
