Dr. O'Connor explains if medical insurance will pay for hip replacement surgery.
Hip replacement for arthritis is covered by insurance companies. It’s an absolutely appropriate reason for you to have an operation, assuming of course that your arthritis is bad enough and yes, it’s covered. I have never experienced it not being covered.
