Women’s Health and Cancer Rights

2013 - 2014

Your medical plan, as required by the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998, covers reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy provided in a manner determined by a physician’s consultation. This includes reconstruction of the breast on which the mastectomy was performed, surgical reconstruction of the other breast for symmetrical appearance, prostheses and treatment of the other physical complications at any stage of the mastectomy, including lymphedemas. These reconstructive benefits are subject to the same terms and limitations as other covered medical and surgical benefits and are in accordance with federal regulations.
