So when my insurance called me over the summer to set up regular calls checking in on the pregnancy they let me know they cover breastpumps, as most now do. They told me they only cover manual, however. Ok fine, no big deal, I figured I would just ask about making up the difference to get an electric, as I'm going to need to pump efficiently at work. Well...stupid me didn't think to check prices until today and had a near heart attack. I had no idea the price difference was so large! I feel like their covering a manual is just crap, manuals are cheap! As great as my insurance is (I haven't paid out of pocket for an appt since my initial visit and my hospital stay is insanely cheap as well) I would have thought the coverage on a pump would be better than this.
Here's where I need help! I obviously can't afford the ever popular Medela electric on top of all the other baby expenses and I really haven't heard any reviews for other pumps. So have any of you had luck with a more inexpensive electric pump? Recommendations are very much needed! Thanks
