Insurance Reimbursement FAQs

Is a lactation consultation covered by my insurance plan?


Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), lactation services are covered without co-payment upon renewal of non-grandfathered health insurance plans.  However, you will need to speak with your individual provider to understand the effective date with your policy and the specifics of how that benefit will be provided.


Do I need a referral, pre-authorization or letter of medical necessity?


The answer to this question depends on your specific plan, so please call your member services line for that information. If a letter of medical necessity is required, please contact us and we will provide you with it.


How many visits will my insurance cover?

Your insurance may cover up to 6 visits with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. However, this does vary between insurance companies, so please call your member services line to learn what your benefits cover.

Does the Breastfeeding Center accept my insurance?

If you have Aetna – yes! Otherwise, we’ll give you forms to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
