Reconditioned bumper cover only?

Hi all,

i recently got rear ended in a parking lot (I am the non-fault). I went to my insurance's adjuster yesterday and on the report he wrote "replace with reconditioned bumper cover". Today I went to the bodyshop and told them I want a brand new bumper cover but he goes "the insurance is not going to pay for a new one unless we couldn't find a recon'd one..."

This sounds weird to me cuz this past summer I got rear ended in WA and the insurance also noted recondition bumper cover however I sent my car to the bodyshop that only uses brand new parts. It turned out the insurance company was okay with that eventually and paid the bill.

I ain't sure if this is the case? or can I insist to get a brand new bumper cover?
