Dr. Reed, Do you accept insurance for transgender MTF vaginoplasty? Marilyn
Dear Marilyn, If your insurance company is accepted by our hospital, we will reduce our fees by several thousand dollars, as this will defray the facility fee and cost of anesthesia. We do not accept insurance, but note that some doctors starting out with limited case experience may to “get on board.”
Insurance companies only pay about 10 to 15 cents on the dollar, and this doesn’t begin to cover the hours spent in surgery and followup care.
Please call Anne at our office for a compassionate discount. We want to be on your short list for vaginoplasty surgeons you are seriously considering. Do ask if they display before and after pictures of their MTF work on their web-sites.
