Circumcision is a surgical procedure in which the foreskin of the penis is removed. It is a common practice in some cultures and religions, but it is not considered a medical necessity in most cases. Some medical conditions, such as phimosis (a condition in which the foreskin is too tight) or recurrent infections, may require circumcision as a treatment option, but these situations are relatively rare. In cases where circumcision is deemed medically necessary, coverage may be provided by international medical insurance policies.

This type of exclusion is common in international medical insurance policies, as circumcision is typically not considered a medical necessity. However, in cases where the procedure is required for treatment of an acute medical condition covered by the plan, coverage may be provided.
