Default Do insurance companies pay for laser treatments?

Hi, I am new to this website. I am 24 years old and have a pws on my face, neck and parts of my chest. When I was 11 years old I had a series of 6 candella laser treatments but discontinued the treatments b/c I developed asthma and could no longer be put under general anesthesia. I remember my MD telling my mother that I should have the treatments done before I was 18 years old so that insurance would cover it (afterwords it would be considered "cosmetic"). I am wondering if this is true. Obviously, all insurance companies differ, but in general do most adults have to pay out of pocket for treatments? My pws is superficial and I would really like to resume treatment but money is certainly an issue. Have any of you had any luck in getting your insurance companies to pick up all or even part of the bill?
