It can be possible to obtain a free breast pump through your insurance company, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. A breast pump is useful for storing extra milk, allowing you to leave your baby with someone else on a date night, and emptying your milk supply if you're too full. There are a few insurance providers who may not be subject to this requirement, so contact your insurance company to learn details.
Ask them if your policy covers a breast pump, when during your pregnancy you are eligible for one, and which medical supply companies can give you one (momlovesbest.com). You can also ask if you need to get one from a medical supply store, or if you can purchase one online and have your receipt reimbursed. Making sure that you ask a lot of questions will better help you to find answers and obtain a breast pump.
The four best suppliers of breast pumps are Aeroflow Breast Pumps, Edgepark Medical Supplies, Lucina, and Byram Healthcare. They provide multiple brands of breast pumps. To obtain a pump, research your many options and ask your insurance company thorough questions.
