Does insurance cover botulinum toxin injections?

Health insurance policies vary, so always check with your provider. Most health insurers cover treatments for migraines, urinary incontinence or other medical conditions. Insurers don’t typically cover injections for cosmetic purposes.

A note from Cleveland Clinic

Botulin toxin injections like Botox and Dysport offer temporary relief from migraines, excessive sweating, certain eye problems and other health problems. As a cosmetic procedure, these injections smooth wrinkles by preventing muscles from contracting. Treatment effects don’t last forever, which means you’ll need more injections in three to six months. It is safe to get repeated botulinum toxin injections.
