Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) of 1998

Federal law requires the following notification:  Group health plans that provide medical and surgical benefits in connection with a mastectomy must provide benefits for certain reconstructive breast surgery.  This Plan complies with the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) that indicates that for any covered individual who is receiving benefits in connection with a mastectomy and who elects breast reconstruction in connection with it, coverage will be provided in a manner determined in consultation with the attending physician and the patient, including:

 

  • reconstruction of the breast on which the mastectomy was performed;
  • surgery and reconstruction of the other breast to produce a symmetrical appearance; and prostheses and physical complications for 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, Employee Benefits Administration Office at (480) 644-2299.
