Am I covered to inject Kybella for the treatment of double chins?

Updated 5/29/2018

Coverage for this procedure is included under OMIC’s Surgery Class 1 rating classification.

Kybella (formerly known as ATX-101) is an injectable drug made from deoxycholic acid.  In April 2015, the FDA approved Kybella as a treatment for adults with moderate to severe fat below the chin. The safety and effectiveness of Kybella for treatment of submental fat were established in two large clinical trials. Use of Kybella for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area is neither approved nor recommended by the FDA.
