Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Medicare might cover this - it really depends which State you live in - because Medicare is really not run by the federal government - it is a federal mandate where the federal government you need to do this - and hence the State ends up footing the bill. So, you will need to ask your doctor if botox can be covered in your State.
Take care.
