Medicare question

Does anyone know if Medicare will pay for a double mastectomy if cancer only in one breast? Was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 - had lumpectomy and 7 weeks of radiation. I have now been diagnosed with micro invasive ductal carcinoma in situ and will have a mastectomy. I was also diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2010 and my mother died of breast in 1996.

I know insurance sometimes does not pay for a double mastectomy if no cancer in other breast. Didn't know if my medical history would make a difference.

Thanks for any feedback.

g2g Southern Indiana

Never been to a g2g. Was wondering if there are any SI's in the southwest Indiana area that would be interested.
