The cost of breast reconstruction varies based on the technique used and several other factors. The experienced team at The Breast Center Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery will make sure you have a clear understanding of how much it will cost in your case. We offer financing plans through CareCredit, and we will help you determine your insurance coverage for the procedure.
Is Breast Reconstruction Covered by Health Insurance?
A Federal law called the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 (WHCRA) requires group health plans, insurance companies and HMOs that offer coverage for mastectomies to also provide coverage for breast reconstruction following a mastectomy. When this legally required coverage applies, it must include every stage of reconstruction for the breast(s) that underwent mastectomy, and it must include surgery of the other breast so that your final results look symmetrical.
The staff at The Breast Center Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery is experienced in working with insurance companies in regards to breast reconstruction; however, each insurance company and plan is unique. Please contact us for additional information regarding reconstruction and your insurance.
