Women have right to health insurance coverage for breast reconstruction surgery after mastectomy
Last updated May 22, 2009
The law appears to aim at restoring the part of a woman that is lost from a masectomy. But at what point does it become cosmetic? Should insurance cover the cost of a woman seeking to enlarge her natural breast size after a masectomy?And what about other forms of reconstructive breast surgery (beside silicon or saline breast implants)? A good family friend of mine received a reconstruction using her natural fat after surviving breast cancer.In the end, an insurance company is trying to run a business, not a charity. What should they really be responsible for?
