If you have had or are going to have a mastectomy, you may be entitled to certain benefits under the WHCRA of 1998. We’ll determine what your coverage will be based on our consultations with you and the attending physician regarding:
 

  • All stages of reconstruction of the breast on which the mastectomy was performed
  • Surgery and reconstruction of the other breast to produce a symmetrical appearance
  • Prosthesis
  • Treatment of physical complications of the mastectomy, including lymphedema

You’ll also receive benefits if you’ve had a mastectomy as a result of breast cancer while covered under a different health plan. Your coverage is provided in accordance with your plan design and is subject to plan limitations, copays, deductibles, coinsurance and referral requirements, if any, as noted in your plan documents.

For more information, contact Member Services at the number on your ID card. You can also find resources from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the National Institutes of Health.
