Medicare & Personal Insurance Benefits
Insurance and insurance claims are one of the last things that you want to deal with during breast cancer treatment and recovery, but it is important to be informed about what parts of your treatment plan are covered by insurance. Many of our clients aren’t aware of the extent of coverage for prostheses and bras that their personal medical insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid will cover. At décolletage we’re here to help you understand the insurance allocations and know exactly which products are covered under your insurance plan. The challenge with insurance is that different plans from personal insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid allow different types of coverage so it can be hard to understand what is allowed and what isn’t. Your fitter will work directly with your insurance company to understand your coverage and share that information with you. We will help you shop within your insurance budget and we will submit your claims directly for you so you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket for covered products.
Another piece of understanding insurance coverage is knowing when you’re eligible for re-fitting and new bras or prostheses. Once we have an understanding of your insurance coverage we will keep track of the benefits schedule and provide you with reminders so you know when you can add or replace items in your wardrobe with insurance coverage.
