Insurance Coverage for Gynecomastia Correction – Petition
I came across this and thought it might interest the board since it is a specifically male issue…
It’s a petition to correct the situation where gynecomastia correction surgery is considered a 100% cosmetic procedure and not covered by insurance. Gynecomastia is a condition where a man grows female breast tissue and needless to say, it can be pretty traumatic and emotionally scarring. I’ve heard of people contemplating suicide over it. And I think the only way to correct it is surgery but that is quite expensive.
So anyway, if you think this should be covered, go ahead and check out the petition. And if not, just be glad you don’t have female breasts!
