Anybody already worked through their new ACA-required insurance coverage for a breast pump? I gave my pump away 7 yrs ago and will need a new one this year. I wrote to Health Alliance today saying my OB had asked me to request a list of covered pumps & providers (so that we can start fighting to get a double electric covered if they say crappy manual).
Insurance & Breast Pumps
I have called my insurance company. They gave me three companies from which I can order the pump. They are all medical supply companies; I can't just order from Amazon or something. This is one of the companies: https://www.edgepark.com/shopcatalog/item/ml57065
However, I cannot order the pump until the baby is born. It seems that it will take about two weeks to get the pump.
Just call or e-mail them. I have a fairly unassuming policy with Aetna through my school district and I e-mailed them through the "contact us" link on their website. They sent me a couple of vendors but were unable/unwilling to tell me how much I would be responsible for paying for the breast pump (rolling eyes here). The vendors knew, however - I had a choice of several double electric pumps with no co-pay (I got the Medela Ultra), and if my baby is born with a tongue-tie or other feeding issues, I can exchange it for a medical grade one (I believe the brand is Hygeia).
Anyway - even if all they reply with is a list of vendors, the vendors can tell you (or find out) what you're eligible for. Good luck!
