    You need to check with your insurance company as what one may pay others won't.

    Yes. I had cancer in Lt. breast only, BRACA was neg. Insurance paid for bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. Check with your insurance company, or have the surgeon's office to confirm. Good luck.

    Probably yes! Lately the Medicine finally saw it’s better to pay for a little more expensive surgery than for treat another cancer along the path. My insurance did pay for everything - double mastectomy, expenders and reconstruction.
