Will Medicare Cover My Flap Surgical Procedure?

This week, Dr. Richard Kline of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your questions.

Q: If I have had cancer and a breast was removed, will Medicare cover the flap procedure?

A: Yes, if you have had mastectomy, Medicare will absolutely cover the reconstruction procedure of your choice.  It will also cover surgery on the other breast to improve symmetry, if necessary. Let me know if you have any other questions you would like answered or want to talk in depth about the procedure with one of our clinical staff members.  We’re always happy to help!

Thank you for your question.
