I don't know if it is covered or not because I don't think it is right. It is so cruel and inhumane to do that to a newborn baby boy. My husband and I actually did our research when we had our son, and everything we read said that there is no reason to have it done except for cosmetic reasons or for religious reasons. As long as you aren't lazy and you teach your son to bathe properly there is no reason to have it done. When they are older they actually might thank you for not having it done because a circumcised penis actually gets desensitized (because of all the rubbing inside of underpants and what not) and a uncircumcised penis is more sensitive making sex much more pleasurable. I am so thankful that I was not barbaric and did not have a piece of my son's penis cut off a day after he entered this world.

I think our insurance would cover it, but we decided not to anyhow. The foreskin is a normal, healthy, and beneficial body part, so we left it on our son. Also, I didn't want to deal with the extra work of caring for a circumcised baby. Diaper changes are so easy when you DON'T circumcise. I might have decided against circumcision for that reason alone!
