WHCRA-Special Laws for Women with Breast Cancer

Are all insurance companies required to provide this coverage?

Generally yes. Group health plans, insurance companies, and HMOs that provide coverage for mastectomies are required to follow the WHCRA. Some church and government plans may fall outside the scope of the law. If you believe that you are insured as part of a church or government plan, you should check with your plan administrator.
