Abstract

This study is the first to investigate the differential effects of payer status on outcomes following breast reconstruction. Our results suggest that Medicaid and Medicare insurance status does not independently predict increased overall complication rates following breast reconstruction. This finding underscores the commitment of the plastic surgery community to providing consistent care for patients, irrespective of insurance status.
