Breast Pump & Insurance

How did you know if your breast pump was covered by insurance?  I can't find anything in my policy about it. 

Also did your insurance require a prescription from the OB?

How soon should I make this a priority?

Re: Breast Pump & Insurance

  • I just called and asked them if the breast pump was covered and they will tell you.

    My insuranceUHCdid not require anything written from doctor or an RX.

    My insurance won't let you order one until your a couple weeks out from delivery.

  • I called, they were so helpful in providing all the info I needed. I did not need any prescription and I just have to mail back a postcard they sent to me around 36wks and they will ship it out!

    I would just call, sometimes that is easier!

  • For those wondering. 

    They told me that it is NOT covered right now under my policy but that effective July 1st (I suppose the healthcare reform kicks in with my insurance) it will be covered at 100%.  So I will be calling back July 1st. :)
