I had diep reconstruction in July. Since then I have noticed a few stray hairs around my and the PS suggested laser hair removal before nipple tattoos. Is it hugely expensive and does insurance ever pay for it (Medicare or BCBS)? So far they have paid for everything involved with the reconstruction.

Hi @sandyjr, Your best option is to contact your insurance company to determine if they cover that specific medical code considering the diep reconstruction. You will notice that I moved your question over to your previous discussion regarding your reconstruction so that it can ask the members who participated in the last conversation and so they can respond to one post. You will notice that this will bring your conversation to the top of the group discussions so that the most recent comment stays relevant.

Have you been able to contact either insurance to discuss with them the charges?
