Humana and Medicare cover cost of explant?
I'm asking for someone who called. I thought in cases of severe contracture and leaking implants any insurance would cover expenses for health reasons and allow it toward deductible. But I'm not knowledgeable in this area at all.

Together we can help put an end to the brutal sport of breast implantation.

Nope, I was told sorry, see ya. No doubt! I have an infection, BCBS ppo. If I die or am cut in half no one is accountable. But, I can smoke, do most all drugs, drink, be 800lbs and go crazy and I am covered. Good to know, after all this one or more could happen, LOL.

It's always a gamble. My initial implant surgery was partially covered because it was for reconstructive surgery. The 30k in removing the junk making me sick was not.
