Hello ladies, I'm currently 18 wks preggo with my first and I have every intention on breast feeding! It's the best choice for my baby and has so many benefits, I encourage all Mommy-to-be's to give it a shot even if it's not something you're particularly interested in. I've been breast pump searching on and off for the last week or so and fell in love with a double electric pump which happens to be expensive.. $300+ and was thinking if I added it to my registry no would would get it and I'd have to find the money to get it myself. Well, I came across this blog and just found out that certain insurance company's pay for breast pumps!!! It's through the Affordable Care Act and is considered a "preventive service". I logged into my insurance account, found the list of approved DME suppliers, went to their websites and found a wide range of covered, popular name brand breast pumps, you can even rent hospital pumps, cool right? Fortunately the one I wanted is covered by my insurance but I can't receive it until after I deliver.. either way I'm beyond excited I found this out now that $300+ can be applied to other things! I hope you ladies find this helpful!!! Hugs & Healthy Babies To All
This very much depends on the insurance company. For example, mine through Kaiser gives a free breast pump. This free pump is a manual single pump. Pretty much useless. BUT if you have any medical condition that puts you at risk for breast feeding problems then a hospital breast pump is provided for free for 6 months. So definitely research
