It depends on your country....for instance, in Italy, if you need to change implants, you have to pay just for new implants costs. And you don't have to pay for surgery.
In switzerland, insurances pay just the remuval, the rest of the surgery and new implants are at your charge!
Anyway in private clinics the price for these procedures is more or less the same for augmentation mammaplasties.

Hello

No health insurance cover these surgeries.
In Brazil a exception have been given cause government feel itself with responsability to let some kinds enter with out quality control, f.example..rofil(holland) and eurosilicone(french), both of them have no medicine silicon and yes, industrial silicon.

Some conditions are covered by insurance...breast reduction over 400-grams and policystics breast and cancer where mastologists indicate mastectomy and reconstruction with implantas are necessaries.

Doctors have not those insurances make their job privately, plans can give you part or total payment depending on.

Good lucky, with attention

It depends on your country, but the common factor is that insurance in any country will pay for any kind of re-constructive breast surgery, for example carcinoma of breast, but not for cosmetic breast augmentation, in healthy adults.

The standart Breast Augmentation is not covered in almost all countries.
The Breast could be reconstructed after breast cancer with silicon implants and the insurance should cover this.

Cosmetic breast augmentation is not customarily covered by health carriers. However you may qualify for insured services if you suffer from significant breast asymmetry, developmental breast deformities, or breast cancer. There are significant differences in coverage based on your insurance carrier. If you believe you are a candidate for coverage, contact your insurance carrier directly and be prepared to send standardized professional grade photos of your chest for their review process.

In our country insurance doesn't cover breast augmentation, and in most of the countries neither, as it is considered a cosmetic surgery, that is not covered by insurance. In some countries, some cases of congenital deformity like Poland syndrome may cover the operation, depending the type of insurance you have.
