How much does skin cancer removal cost?
Skin cancer removal is considered a reconstructive procedure and should be covered by health insurance. Pre-certification is generally required for reimbursement or coverage. Be sure to consult with your insurance company in advance of any surgery.
Skin cancer removal costs may include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Hospital or surgical facility costs
- Medical tests
- Prescriptions for medication
- Surgeon's fee
When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for skin cancer removal surgery, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.
