Does insurance cover scar removal if you see adepression

But one important question to ask since it seems that there are many members of these boards who have suffered mental disorders(depression, generalized anxiety, obsessive complusive disorder) and claim it all started when acne started, if you go to a psychologist for mental problems and you and your doctor definitly comprehend the the root of the problem as when acne occured thus the scarring, its one assumption that if the marks were removed via surgery the problem would go away as well... Now since mental assistance ( therapy and medicine) is covered under insurance would scar removal if was the reason for the abnormalities of the brain be covered under insurance as well?

To find out for sure, call your insurance provider.

I would think the first step in having any chance at recovering some sort of insurance coverage is to see a certified MD ( psychologist). If you have at least a professional backing you up, the the case looks strong. As of know, i have never seen a shrink and havent suffered severe mental problems, i am just very self concious of my face, that's all and if the scars/spots were removed, i really believe my confidence would return as well..
I function, go to school, have a job... So the only motivation in seeing a shrink would the be for insurance relief for the surgery.
I could understand if they dont cover it completely but even partly would be nice!

So we would complain again, and the circle is round again. So it's no use anyways..
