WHCRA-Special Laws for Women with Breast Cancer

What does the WHCRA consider “reconstructive”?

All stages of reconstruction are covered under the WHCRA--reconstructive surgery of the breast upon which the mastectomy was performed is covered, as well as surgery of the other breast as needed to produce a symmetrical appearance. Also covered are prostheses and treatment of physical complications of the mastectomy, such as lymphedema.
