One of the first things Moms-to-be add to their Baby Registry is a Breast Pump. Many new or veteran Mommy’s know the benefits of breastfeeding and will do whatever it takes to make it a smooth process. What a lot of Moms don’t know is that their health insurance will cover a breast pump with no or little cost. I didn’t know this when I had my first son, I had my pump on my registry and even had it purchased. It wasn’t until I did a little more research and made a lot of calls that I learned my planned covered a hospital grade pump, including the one I was gifted!! I immediately returned the pump, which was great for more diapers and other useful newborn products I needed.
So other Moms don’t have to make the calls and wait for call backs, there’s a one place stop shop to apply for your breast pump! The Breastfeeding Shop is a small business that all you have to do is fill out this form and they will not only obtain the prescription for a pump from your doctor but also check your insurance to see which pumps you qualify for! They specialize with working with Military Moms and Tricare Insurance but also check other insurances as well.
I wish I learned of The Breastfeeding Shop with my first son, by the time I had my second son it was time for a new pump. Filling out the form on the The Breastfeeding Shop’s site was a one stop shop. I received an email within days and selected which pump I wanted, my insurance paid for it all!!
