Has anyone had Medicare pay for prophylactic mastectomy
I have had bilateral breast cancer and I have the CHEK2 mutation. I have had lumpectomies in both breasts and just found out about the mutation. According to the stuff I can find on the computer, Medicare will not pay for a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. I do not currently have BC, but after finding out about the mutation, I just do not want to deal with it again. Has anyone had this experience?
