Blue Cross Blue Shield Circumcision Coverage

AETNA coverage for circumcisionMost local BCBS plans cover the costs of adult circumcision when performed for medically necessary reasons.  Circumcisions that are performed for religious, aesthetic or hygienic reasons are not typically covered by Blue Cross plans in New York, New Jersey, and most other states.

Medically Necessary Circumcision

Circumcision is considered medically necessary when a patient has an underlying medical problem that can be treated with circumcision.

Medical problems such as phimosis, balanitis, inflammation of the foreskin, extensive genital warts involving the foreskin, penile mass or cancer, and symptoms such as pain, frequent infection of the foreskin, bleeding from the foreskin are considered medically necessary and are typically covered by Blue Cross plans including Empire Blue Cross, Anthem Blue Cross and Horizon BCBS.  Blue Cross of Illinois, Arkansas, Texas, and California have similar policies.  Florida BCBS covers circumcision as well when it is medically necessary.
