Breast surgery revision
There is a National Law that states that any insurance which covers mastectomy for breast cancer must cover reconstruction and that includes revisions! Good luck!

Reconstruction following breast cancer is always a covered benefit
Reconstructino following breast cancer is always a covered benefit. Although there is no way to obtain a pre-authorization for surgery with Medicare, it should certainly be covered.
