Congress passed the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act in 1998 which requires insurance coverage for reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy.  This includes surgery on the involved breast and also surgery on the opposite breast for surgery.  Nipple reconstruction is part of the coverage and your health insurance plan has to cover this service!
