International Hyperhidrosis Society

I’m not sure whether my health insurance covers hyperhidrosis treatments. How can I find out?

Sometimes, the cost of hyperhidrosis treatment can be an obstacle. But it doesn’t have to be. The first step is finding out what your health insurance plan typically covers and what it doesn’t. To help you get started, we’ve published a list of links to major U.S. health insurance organizations’ public Hyperhidrosis Coverage Policies. You'll find these links in our Insurance Tools area.

If you do not see yours listed, either the organization does not make its policies public OR we could not locate it. If you know where to find your health insurance organization’s hyperhidrosis policy (or policies), we would love to add the information to our list. Just send the appropriate URL to us at

Don’t panic if your plan doesn’t seem to cover your treatments. You do have recourse. Enlist the help of your physician and petition for coverage. Talk to your doctor about submitting a Letter of Medical Necessity (download a sample letter from our Insurance Tools area) to your insurance company. And, if you’re looking for coverage for BOTOX treatments, in particular, check out the information we have about BOTOX Insurance Help, again in our Insurance Tools area.

You’ll find a step-by-step guide to these and other related topics in the Insurance Tools section on this site.
