Financial Help for Breast Reduction?
I'm sorry to hear about the difficult situation you are in. It seems that options available to you include additional attempts at seeking Medicaid "coverage” for the breast reduction procedure. Sometimes, repeat consultations and applications (persistence) can prove to be effective.
Otherwise, you will need to gradually save and have the procedure done “fee for service”. You may find a university hospital setting in your area and potentially have the procedure done for less.
Based on your description, breast reduction surgery may prove very beneficial to you; I would suggest continued persistence.
