The following information about Breast Reconstruction is provided for Pasadena and Riverside residents courtesy of Dr. Stewart Wang, a board certified plastic surgeon.
Reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other diseases is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures available today. New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come very close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast.
Many breast reconstruction patients in Pasadena, Arcadia, and Upland, California want to learn more about whether insurance will cover their reconstructive procedure. Insurance coverage for breast reconstruction depends on many factors. While most insurance companies never pay for cosmetic procedures, coverage for reconstructive procedures varies greatly based on your insurance plan and the treatment you require. In some cases, an insurance company will pay for a breast reconstruction procedure once the patient has satisfied all required co-pays. In other situations, the patient will be responsible for all costs associated with the surgery.
Because there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to insurance coverage for the reconstructive procedures we offer, please call us at (888) 360-6688 so we can review your case and give you specific details about your insurance coverage for the consultation and the procedure itself. Our goal is to help you maximize your insurance benefits before having to pay for your breast reconstruction procedure out-of-pocket.
