helps you get your lipedema treatment covered by your health insurance

Lipedema is a disease and surgery to treat it should be covered by health insurance. There is no reason that people should be draining their savings or borrowing money to pay for their surgery.

Over the past two years, we have helped dozens of patients get covered and reimbursed for their surgery. Many people are winning when they have to appeal and many smaller plans will cover you without an appeal. Even if you are covered, you may need help because an approval does not mean that you will get reimbursed a reasonable amount.

Cover Lipedema has solutions for these situations:

  • You want fair coverage by your insurer.
  • You need to appeal a denial of coverage.
  • You have to get a network gap exception.
  • You want reimbursement of your self-payment.

Even if you pay cash for your surgeries, it’s much better to start the coverage or appeal process first.  In about a third of cases, you can get covered before or while you are having surgeries.  Using our database of payment information, patients  could get reimbursed between $7,500 and $15,000 per surgery. Even Medicare and Medicaid patients are getting covered. The process can still be challenging and can take between three and nine months.
