Re: Cost for Salpingectomy

Thank you everyone for the responses so far!

I probably should have been a little clearer about why I am getting the surgery. Iíve tried multiple birth control methods and have had unpleasant side effects. I know I donít want children and explicitly asked my gynaecologist to refer me for this surgery. I donít want to deal with trying to find a birth control method anymore when I KNOW I donít want kids in the future.

She was pretty luke warm about this procedure. I had actually mentioned it before trying the last birth control method but she was really pushy about trying another temporary measure. She kept repeating that itís possible that I would change my mind. This is why I thought the surgery wouldnít be covered - because itís for birth control (which isnít usually covered anyways) and elective.

I tried calling my insurance last night to ask if it was covered and the person literally told me ďI donít knowĒ. So I though I was asking the wrong place - I will call again today!
