Hi Ruby,

In the first instance I would comply with their requirements, and obtain the photographic proof and medical opinion. It seems from them asking you for this information that if it justifies the operation they will pay, unlike some schemes that do not cover that procedure.

The down side is that it is acceptable to ask for this proof, and by them asking for it means that they will definitely consider paying the procedure.
