A Journey of Discovery
Banality slouches just below the fold. As compensation, here is a piece of art that has completely different implications depending on the intended perspective.

...replying "OK get it out." counts as elective surgery.
This is the kind of thing that activates that small part of me that said "gee, is electing Trump and blowing everything up really something to be avoided?"
This is not a "1st World Problem" per se. I mean, confounding healthcare with health insurance is, but stuff like this is "Do you get paid be stupid, or do you do it for free/are just bad at your job/your boss is the World Destroyer?"

In fairness to the hospital, the lady I spoke to there was suitably incredulous as to the procedure not being covered. According to her, the only other thing that it could be given the info she had would be if I had no insurance at all, which is not the case. Her theory (That at some point one of the doctors wrote something like "Paitent ELECTED to have procedure done." Got coded in as an elective procedure) seems likely. The fact that other doctor/dental/ER visits have been covered this year make it seem likely that this is either a coding error or an expansive view of the word "elective" is indeed in place.
Though I am not prepared to rule out Kobolds.

At some point all surgery is elective unless you're brought in unconscious and bleeding out. But that's not what's meant by "elective surgery".
