Breast pump covered by insurance
I mention this because I found out my current insurance covers breast pumps. Make sure to check your insurance benefits and/or talk to your insurance rep if you plan on getting a breast pump. If it is covered make sure you follow their rules to get reimbursement (e.g., if it needs pre-approval, if precription required, if you have to buy through pre-approved supplier vs can get one at retail store, if only particular brands are covered).
My policy had it listed under medical equipment and when I talked to a rep, she said I could buy at retail store (like BabiesRUs) and send in receipt with claims form and they allow reimbursement up to $300. I'm excited because I just had a manual pump last time but I ended up getting mastitis six times and weaning DS at nine months so I'm hoping this will help me nurse longer.
