Does medicaid pay for breast reductions if your having difficulties w/ them ?HELP SIZE 44DD?

Medicaid will pay for breast reduction surgery only if you can prove that it is medically necessary. There is also a certain amount of grams of breast tissue that needs to minimally be removed in order for it to be covered. Usually somewhere around 350 to 400 grams.
Only if your doctor can medically demonstrate you are having health problems because of the size of your breasts....back problems, breathing difficulty etc. Check it out with hinm.
Yes they would pay for the proceedure depending on how your doctor writes up your paper work! Get 2 Opinions for it to be more convincing! Good luck!
Only if you can get a doctor to say it is a medical necessity. You would have to experience severe health problems for medicaid to cover this procedure. Otherwise, it is cosmetic surgery.
You should be covered. Make sure you see a PS that is in your insurance plan or you would pay more out of pocket than with someone in your plan.

They will take pictures and send in information. Complain of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, grooves in your shoulders and rashes under your breasts.

Tummy tuck surgery is very safe nowadays. There is one company that is very famous in India that arranges Tummy tuck, Liposuction surgery for foreigners in India. They are called the Fly2india4health Consultants. I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and about their patient stories. I have also read that they arrange financing for international patients, as all surgery is not covered by insurance or by the stinking NHS.

They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. The cost savings are incredible. As a doctor I personally believe that your Tummy tuck, Liposuction surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of Healthcare available here is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.

My cousin got her Tummy tuck, Liposuction surgery done there and she is more than very happy with the results. She is all praise for Fly2india4health Consultants. She paid just 20% of the cost what she was quoted in USA and it was like a wonderful vacation for her. Hope this helps
