Most health insurance companies will cover the full cost, without co-pays or deductibles. See below for questions and answers about the new insurance coverage guidelines.

How Soon Can I Get My Pump?
Your health insurance provider determines when you are eligible to receive your breast pump. In many cases, they will follow your doctor's recommendations on what is medically appropriate. Under some health insurance plans, we can provide you with your breast pump up to 30 days prior to your baby's due date, and up to twelve months following delivery. Other plans will cover your breast pump only after the baby is born.
