Circumcision covered by insurance?

I received a bill today for DS circumcism. It seems insurance may not cover it and I have to call tomorrow to straighten this out. Anyone else have any experience with this?

Re: Circumcism covered?

Im not sure how it is there, but here in Canada we have free health care are we still have to pay for circumcision. Actually, they almost refuse to do it in my province... strange. I'm in the process of trying to find out how to get it done for my DS.

If you dont mind me asking, how much are they charging you ?

Since all Medical Associations no longer recommend routine circumcision, I understood that many states no longer cover it, even in the US.

Re: Circumcision covered by insurance?

My insurance didn't cover it with either of my boys (and I had different insurance companies during each). They state they will only cover it if medically necessary. So I had to pay for it but it only cost me $200 for my first son and it was $150 for my second son (2 different doctors...one a ped and one an ob/gyn).
