Health Insurance Coverage
Dysport injections are not generally covered by your health insurance plan. However, if the procedure addresses health issues, such as helping to repair physical deformities, your surgeon can request that your insurance company help cover the cost. Insurance companies can still deny coverage.
Always check with your insurance company before assuming they will cover any part of Dysport injections. Most often, insurance companies will not cover any part of Dysport type procedures.
