Did you know? Medicare covers post-mastectomy or lumpectomy bras. Doctors may order FREE bras (up to $30 each) for breast cancer survivors who have had a mastectomy or lumpectomy and are covered under Medicare. Medicare covers the first $30 of each bra and the woman is responsible for any costs above that amount. Survivors who have had reconstructive surgery are also eligible for free bras. More information to come in future PBCC publications!
