The short answer? No. Here’s why.
Cosmetic procedures, such as those performed using InMode technology, are deemed elective procedures – that is because they are primarily used for improvement in physical appearance and are usually NOT covered by most insurance providers. While most insurance companies will not cover elective procedures, hope is not totally lost.

Cosmetic Procedures Covered and NOT Covered by Insurance Companies
Nevertheless, aesthetic procedures performed for reconstructive purposes, essential to body function, or quality of life are more likely to be covered by insurance providers, but patients are advised to be prepared for submitting copious amounts of time-consuming paperwork and verifiable documentation to prove their “cosmetic” procedure is medically necessary.
If a traditionally deemed cosmetic procedure can be proved a medical necessity, you may be in luck! Just give yourself at least 3-4 months prior to booking your first treatment, as the insurance process is a very tedious and laborious one. Otherwise, if you will be seeking financing options for your InMode treatments for purely cosmetic reasons, we advise you to give yourself at least a few weeks to get everything in order.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the following surgical procedures are commonly covered by health insurance providers:
