Women's Health and
Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) of 1998
Under this Federal Act most group insurance plans that cover mastectomies
also must cover breast reconstruction.
This covers reconstruction of the
breast to produce a symmetrical appearance, external breast prostheses, and
complications of all stages of mastectomy, including lymphedemas.
Coverage is subject to the Plan's normal rules, including in-network
co-payments or out-of-network annual deductibles and coinsurance provisions.
If you have any questions about this law, including Plan benefits for
mastectomies or reconstructive surgery, please contact Margie Ward, Employee
Benefits Administrator at (480) 644-4421.
