Bunion repair is a necessary surgical procedure.

Bunions are a medical problem, not a cosmetic one – even though the Bunionplasty® 360 Bunion Repair™ procedure is performed through tiny incisions like the ones used in laparoscopy or plastic surgery. In many cases, private health insurance companies and Medicare consider bunion surgery medically necessary, so find the doctor who’s right for you, and work with them and your insurance provider to determine your coverage.

About Medical Necessity

When bunions are a medical problem.

At first, mild bunions may not be painful or interfere with daily life. But because bunions may worsen over time, even with preventive measures, surgery may be necessary. Surgical bunion correction is typically appropriate when any of these are true:

  • Simple home remedies don’t help, like modifying activities or wearing supportive shoes
  • Doctor-prescribed physical therapy, custom inserts, injections, and/or other treatments aren’t effective
  • You are unable to wear certain footwear
  • The bunion(s) interfere with activities of daily living
  • A worsening of the bunions cause new foot problems, like arthritis, hammertoes, or pain in the ball of the foot

Of course, bunions affect people differently, and coverage may vary among health insurance providers.

Find a doctor and take the next step.
