Are breast pumps covered by Anthem?

The Affordable Care Act requires almost all insurance providers to cover the cost of breastfeeding equipment and support for however long a mom breastfeeds. And in most cases, Anthem and its subsidiaries will completely cover the cost of a double electric breast pump for new and expectant moms. Each plan covers different breast pumps, and some plans will only process breast pump orders at a certain point in the pregnancy or based on the due date. The maternity product specialists at Pumps for Mom verify moms’ insurance benefits and make it easy for moms to get an Anthem breast pump.

How can I get a breast pump through Anthem?

Does Anthem cover replacement parts for breast pumps or other services?

If you need a different size or replacement breast pump part, talk with your insurance provider to see if the specific component is covered. If your breast pump breaks or malfunctions unexpectedly, you may also reach out to the breast pump manufacturer if the device is under warranty.
