i was wondering if you could help me , i have been asking other surgeons on her and even the sergeon i am due to see in april but no one can give me a straight answer…… my question is will medicare cover all the costs of my breast reduction or only part of it , if only part how much will i be out of pocket, i am on a pension and would like to know a ball park figure as to how much i will need to save..
i am seeing a sergeon in Naracoorte on april 1 2015, and finding out if i can get a breast reduction done for medical reasons due to constant rashes underneath and constant back neck and shoulder pain
I had a breast reduction 4 years ago. I had private health insurance, and I got a medicare rebate of almost a thousand dollars. Here’s an article that should answer your question for you. Note the 2nd paragraph of point 2 in the article.
Hope this is helpful for you.
You should be able to get a written statement of your out of pocket expenses. Medicare and private insurance (if you have it) will only cover a small part of your overall fee. If your surgery is in a public hospital then the entire fee is covered by Medicare.
I hope this helps.
