Medicare and Breast Reduction

HI, i am 18 years old and i have had large breasts for several years now. I have had back pain, shoulder pain etc because of them however now they are a 12F. And i find myself having more problems. I am wondering if medicare covers breast reduction for these types of cases, where the large size of the breasts cause spinal, neck and shoulder pain.

any help would be greatly appreciated

Breast reduction is often an insurance covered benefit.  See a local plastic surgeon who can help with insurance authorization.
