I've had six mammos now, and my insurance does cover. Good idea to get that done pre op. I would not want to have to have a mammo in the first year of having surgery. Jmo...

Not necessarily anymore. I don't know, with the new "guidelines" since Obama (not necessary to have routine mammos until age 50!~insane).

I think that even with the guidelines, it is still up to the doctor and that insurance companies will cover if the patient has a family history or other reason to make them high risk.

My insurance didn't change, thankfully, so I am still able to have the yearly mammo.

I could be all wrong and maybe things have not changed. I have not really read anything on this in a couple years myself.

When I had a revision my doctor demanded an ultrasound and a mammogram to make sure all was good. I was only 30 at the time so my insurance wouldn't cover it normally, however he said that I was having breast pain (which I sorta was from my old implants) and then they covered it.
