Are Breast Pumps Covered by the Affordable Care Act (ACA)?
The Affordable Care Act became the law on March 23, 2010. It requires insurance companies to cover breastfeeding equipment, as well as comprehensive lactation support and counseling from a trained provider, during pregnancy and/or after you give birth. But not all insurance companies fulfill this requirement in the same way. Your benefits are based on your individual insurance company and your specific insurance plan.
What Breast Pumps Are Covered by Insurance?
Most of health plans provide the full cost of a breast pump; others provide only a portion of the cost, or a set dollar amount that is allowable towards a breast pump, and you are responsible for the rest of the cost.
What are the Benefits of Breast Feeding for Mother?
You know that feeding your own breast milk to your infant is best for her, providing Nature’s perfect food, full of just the right sugars, fats, and proteins for her little tummy. You also know that breast milk contains antibodies and trace elements that protect her from illness and cannot be duplicated in formula. But did you know that there are significant benefits to moms, too, making breastfeeding a win/win for everyone?! The benefits continue even when you begin to use a breast pump, and store your milk to feed to your baby later, or to allow someone else the sublime pleasure and bonding experience of feeding a newborn.
