We all know that filing claims with insurance can sometimes be a hassle. Aeroflow has tried to take the struggle out of getting your insurance to provide and cover your breast pump.
Did you know that in 2013 the Affordable Care Act (ACA) started requiring insurance companies to cover the cost of a breast pump? However, just because the law requires it that doesn’t mean the law requires it to be easy. Sometimes getting the right prescription as well as navigating claim forms can be difficult…especially when there is a new baby on the horizon.

Do I Need a Breast Pump?
You might be wondering why do I even need a breast pump? Most commonly, a mom uses a breast pump to return to work and continue to provide breast milk for her baby. A breast pump can support a mom’s breastfeeding goals in a variety of ways. It can help manage engorgement or draw out inverted nipples. Building a supply of expressed milk means your partner can the responsibility and joy of feeding. Also if you are planning to return to work or plan to travel without your baby a breast pump can keep your supply going.
Even if you don’t plan on using a breast pump, it’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Your eligibility for a pump might expire on a certain date after your baby arrives (it varies with different insurance carriers).
Breast Pumps through Insurance
Different insurance carriers and plans have different stipulations, but your Breast pump Specialist will know how to navigate each unique claim. Most insurance plans cover certain features of a pump as opposed to a specific pump. We help moms find the right pump under her coverage.
Some insurance plans require that a mom is at a certain point in her pregnancy before she gets her pump, but your Breast pump Specialist will let you know exactly when you can get order placed. She will even remind you about your eligibility and benefits when your due date is near if you end up having to wait a bit before ordering your breast pump.
Currently, the ACA requires that insurance providers provide breastfeeding support and supplies for lactating mothers. This includes a breast pump and breast pump supplies! Aeroflow makes it easy to get your pump covered for free under your specific insurance plan, and we ensure you receive maximum coverage and reimbursement.
The ‘It’s Really 10 Months’ crew is certainly big fans of providing support to new mothers. We love that Aeroflow is making things easier for families!
