Will Medicare Cover my Procedure?

Many people want to know if Medicare will cover plastic surgery.

Medicare will cover what is deemed essential reconstructive surgery and procedures that have associated Medicare item numbers listed in the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).

Your surgeon will be able to help you understand if your procedure is covered by Medicare, however if you wish to look up a particular type of surgery and their item numbers, refer to the Medicare Benefits Schedule.

For further information to understand healthcare and the costs involved, refer to the attached brochure Informed Financial Consent – a collaboration between doctors and patients.
