Insurance Reimbursement

Not covered by The Lactation Network nor Aetna?

Did you know that under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) all new health plans must provide certain preventive services, including coverage for prenatal and postnatal breastfeeding supplies and support for the duration of breastfeeding? 

For more information, check out the National Women’s Law Center. It is a great resource on how to talk to your insurance company about reimbursement for lactation services (click here for the pdf document).
