Insurance coverage

Health care benefits change and differ from plan to plan and provider to provider. It is important for you to understand your health care benefits before your surgery.

Please call your insurance provider and find out exactly what is and isn't covered under your plan, and how much you have to pay yourself. Write down answers to your questions, including the name of the person who gives you this information.
