Well, milage varies, of course. In the case I'm talking about, there was no medical reason- the desire to have the son circumsised was social (the locker room phenomenon). I have no doubt that a medical problem would have been covered.
I'm on the West Coast and, though I grew up in NY, and I've found that social conservatism of the 'do what's socially acceptable' sort is common here. So, no doubt there are differences in the logic - and I use this term very losely when associated with health insurance - used to determine coverage.

I would guess mileage varies by time as well as place. The West, btw, is the region of the US with the lowest neonatal circumcision rates - not sure whether that's relevant at all.
