If my health insurance covers adult circumcision, will I have to pay a deductible for this, or will it all be covered no charge to me?

You'd have to know whether it's covered, and you'd have to know the cost. If it's $750 and you have to meet the deductible first, then both plans would be exactly the same. But, just saying what the deductible is doesn't help. One would presume outpatient, of course, but there could be a cost difference between in hospital and in a surgical center. One way might be subject to a deductible, and the other might be a copay without having to meet the deductible.
In other words, nobody here could possibly know with the amount of information you've give. We can only tell you where to look - cost per pay, what circumstances does the deductible have to be met first, how the plans work for surgeries, etc...

Depends on your policy, but most insurances have deductibles and copays. Call the insurance company and ask.

LOL - why would strangers on the internet have any idea what your insurance covers??

I think you'd have to pay. Usually, preventative care (birth control, vaccines, cancer screenings, etc.) is the only thing covered at no charge to you.

If your adult circumcision is medically necessary it will be included in your health insurance plan.
I would be very surprised if your insurance considers it a voluntary procedure.
It will be treated like all standard components of your insurance. If you have met your insurance policy's annual out of pocket maximum, there will be no cost to you. If you haven't, there is.

It depends upon your policy. If you can't figure it out, contact the insurance company before you decide to do it, and they will tell you.
