Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act
Dear Participant or Beneficiary,
On October 21, 1998, Congress passed a bill called the Women’s Health Care and Cancer Rights Act, also known as “Janet’s Law”. This law imposes new requirements on group health plans to provide benefits for reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy when mastectomy is a covered benefits under the plan.
As you know, for a number of years, the Danville Community Consolidated School District 118 Group Health Plan has provided coverage for mastectomies. As part of this coverage, the Plan also covered the procedures necessary to effect reconstruction of the breast on which the mastectomy was performed. As well as the cost of prostheses (implants, special bras, etc.) and physical complications of all stages of mastectomy; including lymph edemas, as recommended by the attending physician of any patient receiving Plan benefits in connection with the mastectomy in consultations with the patient. However, the Plan did not cover any surgery and reconstruction of the other breast to achieve a symmetrical appearance.
Effective for the Plan year beginning February 1, 1999 for any participants or beneficiary of the Plan who currently is receiving Plan benefits for a mastectomy, the Plan will provide coverage for any necessary surgery and reconstruction of the breast on which a mastectomy was not performed in order to produce a symmetrical appearance.
This new coverage will be subject to the same deductibles and co-payments that apply to mastectomies under the Plan’s current terms (see the Danville Community Consolidated School District 118 Group Health Plan Summary Plan Description for details of the Plan’s deductible and co-payment requirements for mastectomies).
