Insurance Information

Most cosmetic procedures are not covered by health insurance plans. Contact your insurance provider for more information.

Mount Nittany Physician Group Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgery accepts the following insurers:

  • Highmark Blue Shield
  • HealthAmerica
  • Advantra
  • Capital BlueCross
  • Aetna
  • Geisinger Health Plan
  • UnitedHealthcare
  • Medicare and Medicaid


Some patients requesting specific cosmetic procedures will be required to purchase CosmetAssure. For 17 procedures, this insurance is required prior to surgery. The insurance protects the patient from costs accrued for an inpatient hospital admission. The patient care manager can help you determine if this insurance is required for your procedure.

The majority of major medical health insurance policies now exclude treatment of medical complications if those complications are a result of an elective aesthetic surgical procedure, so purchasing CosmetAssure protects our patients from financial strain should complications arise.
