Will Insurance Pay for Vasectomy Reversal

Will insurance pay for vasectomy reversal? That's a good question. In my case, I think this is what happened. The insurance company told me "no", but because of my pain, they would have to look at from medical necessity. Apparently, the insurance company should have told me they don't pay for reversals regardless of the reason. But because I was given a letter of eligibility and every representative told me they'd pay, the insurance company eventually decided to honor what they told me. Even though, what they told me was incorrect.

So does insurance pay for vasectomy reversal? Not if it's for infertility. Now if it's for post vasectomy pain, you might have a case. However, if the reps say there is a medical necessity clause in your health plan, get something from the insurance carrier in writing, stating they'll pay for it.

Okay, the last 24 hours have been decent without the rapaflo. My left side has the usual post-E.J. ache, my right side feels pretty good. I'm still have little sensations on my right side that radiate into my abdomen. I've had those for as long as I can remember. I think I'm not noticing them as much though.

It's kind of like my back pain. When I first had it, it hurt real bad, every day. Now, 10 years later, I have to really do something before I notice it. Hopefully, my nerve pain will turn into that. Well, that's it. I just wanted to talk a little bit more about the question of will insurance pay for vasectomy reversal.

"It is possible to reattach the vas deferens once it has been severed. Unlike the initial operation, however, the vasovasectomy requires the skill of a surgeon trained to work under the magnification of a powerful microscope. Moreover, this is not an office procedure but requires two to three days in the hospital," Larson revealed.
