Insurance Coverage

   Laser treatments are typically not covered by insurance
   Oral and topical prescriptions may be covered

Effective Treatment may Require Combination Therapies

Effective treatment and management of rosacea’s symptoms generally requires a combination of therapies. Laser treatment is highly effective at treating the redness and flushing associated with rosacea, however such treatments are typically considered by insurance providers as cosmetic and therefore not a reimbursed expense.

Topical and Oral Medications may be Covered

The treatment of rosacea’s acne-like symptoms, pimples and similar bumps, may involve the prescription of topical and oral medications. These are generally covered by insurance. Contact your insurance provider to discuss your particular coverage and its limitations.
