Is cosmetic surgery covered by health insurance?

Most cosmetic surgery is not covered by health insurance. Members who have been disfigured as a result of accidents may receive reimbursement for their surgery from insurance companies.  Some operations, such as breast reduction, may be partially paid for by insurance with prior approval. Typically there are long waiting lists for any publicly funded cosmetic procedures.
