Implant removal

While playing, my neighbour's son sustained wrist injuries and a steel rod was implanted five years ago. Now it is giving him problems and has been advised to remove it and put another new one. Is the implant covered under the health plan?

Re: Implant removal

While the surgery per se may be covered by your insurer, the implant itself may not be covered. talk to your insurer to check if they are willing to do the same
