Is cosmetic eye surgery covered by insurance?

Agnesian HealthCare Marketing & Public Relations

While cosmetic surgery is NOT covered by insurance, surgery to improve function can be covered by insurance.  Upper lid surgery (blepharoplasty) and eyebrow lifts can be covered by insurance when people have peripheral vision loss with obvious upper lid skin redundancy.  In extreme cases, the upper lid skin may rest on the upper lashes when the eyes are open.  Many of these patients will also experience eyelid heaviness, eye strain, headaches, and/or forehead fatigue. Eyelid surgery and brow surgery are often performed together as an outpatient procedure.
