Q&A: Insurance Coverage for Fixing Broken Nose?

Question: I got hit in the nose, and I’m wondering about how I can get it fixed. I don’t want to say i have a deviated septum because I don’t. I can breathe perfectly fine. It’s crooked and ruins my self-esteem. Is there a way to get this fixed off of my insurance? I should be having medicare/medicaid soon.

Will I need to have a nasty crooked scar, or a scar in general, on the tip of my nose even though it isn’t a whole nose fix? This was about a year and 1/2 ago. I know it’s been long, but I have parents that don’t find it very important as much as I do. What do I do to get it back to the way it was? Thanks.

Answer: Fixing a broken nose is mostly covered by insurance companies. Repair of nasal fractures and deviated septum are services covered by the most insurance companies. The incision needed for these surgeries are usually intra-nasal or a very small external incision that is easily hidden.
