Medicaid Coverage for Breast Indentation?

Medicaid coverage for breast indentation
The short answer is that there is a good chance they will not. There is much reconstruction of the management of Medicaid at this time, which will vary from state to state. Some states will have access through an arm of a private insurance, so preauthorization consideration may have some variability. I understand your concern and I wish you the best.
