Would You Insure Your Plastic Surgery?

Nearly 1.6 million cosmetic procedures were performed in 2011, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and that number is only growing. So as more people continue to enhance their features, it serves as a good reminder to check that your health insurance covers your procedure if there happened to be a problem. After all, it usually does not and nine out of 10 people don't know that.

That's where INSUREmySURGERY comes in. This new website, launched by Venture Specialty Insurance, LLC in partnership with Markel Insurance Company, is for people who want insurance to cover complications that arise from any self-elected surgery. Anyone seeking insurance can easily go to the website to find a plan that suits their needs. From there the company will work with the doctor and the hospital to facilitate the claim.

Typically, the complication from surgery must arise within 30 days in order to be covered. But for now it's only available in Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon and Utah.

As always, it's extremely important that you do your research and make sure to choose a board-certified surgeon to perform your surgery to get the best and safest results for your procedure.
