By law, insurance companies are required to cover the costs of breast reconstruction at any time after mastectomy. This includes any surgery required for symmetry of the opposite breast as well. See the links below for the applicable Federal and State laws.
Our office is experienced in working with all major insurance companies. Some insurance companies may urge patients to pursue options such as implant reconstruction, which are cheaper in the short term. However, our office will work with you to keep your own, out of pocket expenses to a minimum.
Please contact our office for assistance. Please include your health insurance information and whether or not you have had previous difficulties with denial of coverage.
