All nursing moms should be aware of how the new Affordable Care Act affects them as women and breastfeeding moms. Under the new law, insurance companies are supposed to cover breastfeeding equipment, such as a breast pump and lactation support.
Make sure to call your insurance company and ask them what their policy is. The law is new so you may have to speak with a few customer service representatives before you get the information. If you have any questions regarding how to get help with contacting your insurance company regarding getting a breast pump, or lactation support, please contact us.
