Read below to find out what you need to check off your to-do list before you can get your breast pump through Pumps for Mom.
Verify Your Health Insurance Info
The first step on your journey to a free breast pump requires a little bit of research. You need to verify your insurance, so you know the amount of your health insurance coverage. Except for a few self-funded and grandfathered policies, the Affordable Care Act requires your health insurance to cover the cost of counseling and support during your time breastfeeding. It also covers equipment, which typically includes a breast pump.
However, each insurance plan is unique and will pay for different kinds of breast pumps. You should verify the specifics of your unique insurance plan before you start to shop. Breast pump coverage also varies from plan to plan. Some insurance companies will provide a new breast pump for each pregnancy, while others will not cover a breast pump if you have already received on within a certain amount of time.
Talk with Your Doctor
Whether you decide on breastfeeding or formula-feeding, you should discuss your options with your doctor. If you have already decided on breastfeeding your little one, you still need to talk with your doctor. Many insurance providers require a prescription for a breast pump. Your doctor may also recommend a breast pump, give you tips for breastfeeding, or steer you towards a lactation consultant if you encounter any issues.
