Rebuilding your breasts after a mastectomy
By law, if your insurance covers mastectomies (surgery to remove all or part of the breast), it must also cover related services such as reconstructive surgery, or if you do not choose surgery, breast prostheses or forms.
Nearly 6,000 women in Washington state are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Too many women are unsure of their rights to rebuild their breasts should they need a mastectomy.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler, along with the Washington State Health Care Authority and the Washington State Department of Health have joined forces to help educate women and men about their health insurance coverage for reconstructive procedures.
