Best course would be to contact your insurance company and ask them for a list of plastic surgeons in your network. Your insurer is the one who decides who they contract with. If you have “out of plan” capability, you may have more choices. New York does have rules regarding charges for out of plan providers. Call your insurance customer service, ask to speak to a supervisor, and ask who you can see in your network or if you have out of network benefits. Good luck.

Congratulations on your weight loss success. As you know, major weight loss can leave men and women with large amounts of loose excess skin. There are plastic surgeons who are expert at providing great improvements and appropriate scars. These procedures can be extensive. Insurance companies vary as to whether they cover skin removal lifts at all and whether they provide adequate funds to surgeons for their work. If the reimbursement is appropriate, many surgeons will participate. If your insurance list does not offer experienced local surgeons, this may be the reason.
