Does Insurance Pay for Eyelid Surgery?
NOV 17, 2014
Will insurance pay for eyelid surgery if it is affecting your vision?
Insurance companies have strict guidelines for coverage of upper lid blepharoplasty. The eyelid skin must be resting on or in front of the patient’s eyelids causing a significant restriction of their peripheral visual field (side vision). This must be documented by photos and visual fields. Additionally, a statement by the patient as to how the droopy upper eyelids are interfering with their activities of daily living is recommended.
