A friend of mine in CA called me to see if it is a law, that insurance cover breast recon after mastectomy. I thought it was. I have found some info on this that I read as it is.
Those of you in CA, there is a lady with stage 4 bc, has had mastectomy (maybe both sides, I am not sure) she has her own insurance which I am sure is minimal as she works for herself..
But, the fact she does have insurance, and I am sure they covered the mastectomy, should'nt they be required to cover the reconstruction?
Please let me know if you know. She is quite depressed (understandably so) .
Thanks my bc sisters!!
