Suggested ad (Aeroflow)

Thanks to the ACA, insurance companies are now required to provide a number of great benefits for moms who plan to breastfeed. Read on to make sure you are taking full advantage the new services available to you.

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.

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 that breast pump might be easier said than done. That is why we have partnered with Aeroflow Breastpumps, a company that works to provide you a name brand breast pump with no hassle, and at no cost to you.

Aeroflow Breastpumps is in-network with most insurance providers in the United States. That means they are likely to help you qualify for a breast pump that will be covered up to 100% by your insurance company. All you need to do is complete their simple Qualify Through Insurance form. After that, an Aeroflow Breastpump Specialist will verify your insurance and then contact you to discuss your coverage and breast pump options.

While there are several services that can help you get a breast pump, Aeroflow Breastpumps definitely offers the largest selection of pumps, all from top-of-the-line manufacturers. Their experts are there to help you choose the pump that will work best for you and your baby.

Expert help:

Many insurance companies now cover at least part of the cost of a consultation with a number of experts. A pre-authorization may be required for the consultation, so you’ll want to speak with your doctor and your insurance company before arranging anything. Once you do, it’s likely that you’ll be able to speak with a nutrition consultant, a personal trainer, and perhaps most importantly, a lactation consultant, all at little to no cost.

This kind of service is available for expecting moms, so you can start getting all of your breastfeeding questions answered by a professional right now.

Time to pump or nurse:

It’s now required that employers with more than 50 employees provide new moms a private, non-bathroom space for nursing or pumping and a reasonable amount of break-time to use it. You’ll want to have an early conversation with your employer about what they can do to help accommodate you, so they’re as ready for your baby as you are.

When you’re pumping on the go, you’ll likely need a tote, possibly an additional charger, and an assortment of other little extras. Aeroflow actually offers a web store where you can shop using your FSA/HSA card to get all your additional breast pumping supplies. Make sure to check it out once you’ve got your breast pump in hand!
