Does Insurance Cover Pectus Excavatum Surgery

Does Insurance Cover breast implants(augmentation) for pectus excavatum???? I heard getting this done, helps with the look of the defomity, instead of having your sternum broken???

Mine did but it was for my son so I do not know about implants. He also had the Newer procedure done called Nuss.
