Hoping your daughter is doing well and on the road to recovery. From what I've read and it's covered under your insurance, you will need to go to a surgeon who is approved under your plan (and classified as non-cosmetic) or you will have to go to a surgeon who is willing to process the insurance paperwork and I think those are not in mass quantity. There is also a ton of paperwork that must accompany any approval so I have heard that you need to be persistent to notify your doctor of any issues that may present themselves so everything is documented. If you have already been approved then only the codes in which you've been approved for will apply. I was researching and found additional information in the articles section https://www.obesityhelp.com/articles/category/plastic-surger y-procedure/

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. Hopefully she is doing well!

Hoping you are able to find some answers you are looking for, if you haven't had surgery yet?
