Your insurance company has its head up its @$$. I had to have it done and it is a legitimate medical problem. The extra weight on the good breast can cause neck problems. I had it done and had no problems. You'll need to have the plastic surgeon tell them it's a problem.
The only problem I had with my insurance company was that it was quite a long time from the mastectomy to the reduction. They said I had waited too long but with all the treatment I had, they approved it on the same phone call.
