What the Affordable Care Act (ACA) does for moms

Suggested ad (Aeroflow)

Whether you support the ACA or not, it’s here and it is really great for moms. There are a number of new laws which make the relationship between parent and insurer more beneficial. Read on to ensure you are taking full advantage of them.

Have you notified your insurance provider that you’re pregnant? If not, it’s time to give them a call! They are now required to provide you timely customer service and communicate your potential benefits in an easy-to-understand format. There are many services you may qualify for, and the best way to find out what is available is to simply pick up the phone.

Visits and prescriptions:

There was a time when you needed a primary care physician’s referral to make an appointment with an OB-GYN, but this is no longer the case. In fact, you now have more options available to you with regards to when you are able to see a healthcare provider and which providers you are in-network with. If you are not satisfied with your primary care provider, or simply want to shop around until you find a provider you feel comfortable with, you now have more tools than ever to do so.

Once you have seen a provider, you might not need to pay for any of the prescriptions they recommend. In fact, your folic acid supplements and prenatal vitamins might now be completely covered by your insurer.

Your breast pump:

It is likely that with the revisions put in place by the ACA, your insurance provider must now cover the cost of your breast pump. However, working with them to get your breast pump can be easier said than done. That is why we have partnered with Aeroflow Breastpumps, a company that is in-network with most insurance providers, to help you receive a breast pump with no hassle, and at no cost to you.

All you need to do is simply complete their Qualify Through Insurance form and one of Aeroflow’s trained Breastpump Specialists will verify your insurance and contact you to discuss your coverage and breast pump options.

While there are other services that can also help you get a pump, Aeroflow Breastpumps offers the largest selection of top-of-the-line breast pumps, and has experts who will make sure you receive the pump that will work best for you and your baby.


Many insurance companies now cover at least part of the cost of a consultation with a number of experts. Contact your insurance provider to see if they cover the cost of meeting with a nutrition consultant, a personal trainer, or even a lactation consultant.

If cutting out tobacco or alcohol was difficult for you, complimentary substance counseling services are now also available for expecting moms.


There are a number of tests that can provide valuable information for preventative medicine: A genetic screening test, an Rh incompatibility screen, checking if you’re anemic, screening for gestational diabetes, and even looking for possible infections that could affect your pregnancy.

Insurers are now required to cover the cost of performing many of these incredibly valuable tests, so be sure to speak with your healthcare provider about what’s available to you.
