What happens if you're at high risk for breast cancer but don't have it, would the surgery be completely out of pocket?

In brief: Pretty much so

With mammorgraphy as accurate as it is in detecting pre malignant lesions of the breast and further evaluation by physical exam and breast MRI, there would not be much value as some have considered, in doing a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction.
I know of no plans that cover such surgical procedures.
