More details about breast reconstruction after cancer

Breast reconstruction after cancer is a surgery for women who wish to restore the original appearance of their breast(s) after the loss of breast tissue due to cancer treatments. It can include the use of implants, body fat, or tissue to reconstruct the original breast. Nipple reconstruction can also be done, sometimes by grafting tissue or tattooing to recreate the size, shape, and color of the original nipple.

Please note that it's always best to check with your HSA administrator or health insurance provider to confirm if you can pay for breast reconstruction after cancer with your HSA card before making any purchases.

A good rule of thumb is that if your doctor diagnosed you with a specific medical condition or ordered a treatment, product, or prescription specifically for you, your HSA should cover it. Sometimes your HSA will even cover items that it normally wouldn't if you have a letter of medical necessity signed by your doctor. Again, you should check with your HSA administrator before any purchase if you have any questions about an item being eligible or ineligible.
