Most health insurance plans do not cover cosmetic surgery or the complications that may arise as a result of undergoing cosmetic surgery. Because Dr. Bruno is a participating board certified plastic surgeon with CosmetAssure you are covered for certain medical expenses that could arise from complications following one or more of the following specified elective plastic surgery procedures:
Abdominoplasty, Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Reduction, Browlift, Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery, Facelift, Liposuction, Lower body Lift, Otoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Thigh Lift, Treatment of Gynecomastia, Upper Arm Lift.
Benefits are available only if you are required to seek medical attention in an Emergency Room hospital, or accredited surgical center within 30 days following a covered procedure, for the following qualifying admitting diagnoses:
Cardiopulmonary related complications: Myocardial infarction, rule out myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmia, hypoxia, pulmonary dysfunction, pulmonary embolus, rule out pulmonary embolus, deep vein thrombosis, fluid overload, cardiac arrest or shock.
Surgery related complications: Hemorrhage, infection.
Anesthesia related complications: Severe hypotension (systolic blood pressure equal to or less than 80, three hours after the covered procedure) or severe hypertension (systolic blood pressure equal to or greater than 200 or diastolic blood pressure equal to or greater than 100 three hours aft her covered procedure).
Benefits are outlined in the CosmetAssure brochure that will be given to you when you come for your pre-op appointment. Please note the list of complications listed above is all inclusive. If you should have a complication that is not listed or if your complication is not severe enough for you to seek care in the ER, hospital, or accredited surgical center there is no benefit available. The only exception to this is if you are sent to a physician or out patient facility to determine whether or not you are experiencing a deep vein thrombosis or blood clot. This can be done in a non-hospital setting.
If you do receive treatment for a covered diagnosis, Cosmetassure coverage does not continue past 26 weeks after your initial date of surgery.
