You guys! I am so excited to share this awesome tip with you today…it's a total game changer! If you haven't heard of this program already, this is the easiest way to get a free breast pump with insurance!
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (the ACA) which was signed into law in 2010, breastfeeding supportive services (including breast pumps) must be covered by health insurance companies. There are a couple of exceptions such as health insurance companies who were grandfathered in before the law was passed, but the good news is that most moms should qualify for a free breast bump with insurance.
And there's even better news….there's a breast pump company that HELPS you to get your free breast pump with insurance, so that you don't have to do all the work!
How to Get a Free Breast Pump With Insurance (and without the work)
There is a company called Aeroflow Breast Pumps that helps you to get your free breast pump with insurance in 3 easy steps! You simply apply and they do all the work to get you approved. They work with leading insurances nationwide, and give access to all the top brands of breast pumps.
I wish I knew about this service with my last pregnancy, because the last thing you want to deal with right after having a baby, is extra paper work. My process involved phone calls with my insurance company, having to get a prescription through my doctor, and then being sent to a specific medical supply store (with store hours that never worked for me). Once I went to the medical supply store, I was only given 2 options for the breast pump. Luckily I got the Medela Pump In Style Advanced (which I LOVE), but if I had known about Aeroflow, my process would have been much easier. Having a breast pump company be the “middle man” to ease the process of getting a free breast pump through insurance is the best thing to happen to breast-feeding moms! Here's the 4-step process of how it works:
