Women's 1998 Health and Cancer Rights Act Annual Notice

As required by the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998, the group health plans offered by the City of Seattle provide coverage for the following services to an individual receiving plan benefits in connection with a mastectomy:

Reconstruction of the breast on which the mastectomy has been performed;

Surgery and reconstruction of the other breast to produce a symmetrical appearance; and

Prosthesis and physical complications for all stages of a mastectomy, including lymphedemas (swelling associated with the removal of lymph nodes).

A group health plan must determine the manner of coverage in consultation with the attending physician and patient. Coverage for breast reconstruction and related services will be subject to deductibles, copays, and/or coinsurance amounts that are consistent with those that apply to other benefits under the plan. Contact your health plan for more information.
