Health Insurance

Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery accepts health insurance on an Out-of-Network basis for DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction and Microsurgery. We are often successful in obtaining authorization numbers and “In Network” exceptions for these complex reconstructive plastic surgery procedures. We will work individually with you and your insurance company to make certain that you receive the care you deserve because you have paid your health insurance premium. We are on your side and will advocate for you.

If your particular insurance company does not allow you to choose your own doctor, we encourage you to select a different plan when it is time to renew your health insurance benefits.

Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery only accepts patients with government medical insurance as private pay. We do not participate in government medical insurance, i.e. – Medicare, Medicaid, TennCare or TRICARE.

We do not accept health insurance for Cosmetic Surgery.

Please call (615) 921-2100 to discuss specific details with one of our team members.
