Whether the costs of a male breast that looks like a woman’s are covered by the health insurance varies from case to case and depends on the cause of the gynecomastia. However, in principle it can be said that the costs of a gynecomastia operation are covered by the health insurance if abnormal breast gland tissue can be detected, for example with the help of ultrasound or X-rays (mammography). In short, if a real gynecomastia is present, the chances are good that the health insurance company will agree to cover the costs partially or completely.
If it is a so-called pseudogynecomastia, which is only an increased accumulation of skin and fat, for example after a strong weight loss or due to age, the health insurance companies usually do not cover the costs of the procedure. This is because it is primarily an aesthetic operation.
