Umbilical Hernia Repair & Insurance Coverage
Umbilical hernia repair is typically fully or partially covered by insurance companies. Obtaining coverage may require detailed documentation of symptoms to deem your repair medically necessary. We encourage all potential umbilical hernia repair patients to contact their health insurance companies to fully understand their guidelines for coverage before their initial consultation.
A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.
