Circumcision...

Do you agree or disagree with how some insurances aren't covering the costs of them anymore? Do you think they really are just cosmetic?

I don't have a problem with insurance not covering circumcision, but then again, my boys are both uncircumcised.  Once I did the research I made the decision that it was purely cosmetic for MY boys, but everyone has to do their own research and come to their own conclusion.

Honestly, I think insurance could stop paying for more useless things.. like Viagra....

Do you think it's right they've taken that option away from parents?

It was your idea, go for it :-) I think it'll prolly draw quite a bit of attention.

They haven't taken the option away.  Some insurances simply don't cover it anymore.  Our insurance plan does.

 I agree. However, I do know sometimes they are medically needed, but in most cases they are just cosmetic. Parents still have the option to circumcise, they just have to pay the $300-$500 themselves.

That is what I meant, sorry for the misunderstanding. Do you think it's wrong that some insurances don't cover it? Better?

Honestly? Even when I wanted to curc my boy and my insurance wouldnt cover it I didnt care, it was something I wanted done not tgat he needed done. Insurance is to help cover NEEDS imo.

However my son was born with a birrh defect that insurance HAD to cover to repair and hes a week and a half post op. Because of watching his intense pain, ive decided any future boys wont be circed and if dad wants it hes fully responsible for getting it done and the care. Because he hasnt changed a post op diaper yet and can hardly look I know thats not an issue.
