Advice on Breast Cancer Reconstruction

Check with Your Insurance Company Before Breast Reconstruction

If your health insurance provider covered the cost of your mastectomy, it must also cover breast reconstruction surgery, per the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998. Your insurance may also cover prosthesis, or surgery to the unaffected breast to make it resemble the reconstructed breast. Delaying the decision to have reconstruction surgery may void your insurer's obligation, so determine what your insurer's policies are before making a decision on reconstruction.
