They don't cover cosmetic procedures.

I suspect my wife would deem it "medically advisable" with a view to using it during waking hours.

Actually most insurance will cover 'medically necessary' cosmetic procedures. One could argue that adding a zipper in this case would be medically necessary....

Now as to whether they cover experimental procedures, that might be another sticking point. I have a feeling there isn't a lot of proven research regarding this particular choice.
