Reconstructive Surgery Notice

If you are an OEBB medical plan member, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that your plan, as required by the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998, provides benefits for mastectomy-related services. This includes all stages of reconstruction and surgery to achieve symmetry between the breasts, prostheses and complications resulting from a mastectomy, including lymphedema. This coverage is provided in consultation with your attending physician and will be subject to the same terms and conditions, including the annual deductible, coinsurance and/or copayment provisions otherwise applicable under your plan. Your benefit handbook or insurance policy contains more information about these mastectomy-related benefits. If you have any questions about coverage for mastectomies and post-operative reconstructive surgery, please contact your insurance carrier’s customer service.
