Thrifty Thursday – Free Pump?
Breast pumps are expensive! Would you like to save money on yours? How about get it for free!!!
Did you know that under the ACA (Affordable Care Act), your insurance will cover most is not all of the cost of your breast pump? It’s true. Here are some details about the Act :
- Under the Affordable Care Act, breast pumps are covered 100% by insurance for all healthcare plans that begin after August 1, 2012. This applies to both the purchase and rental of breast pumps. Your insurance company might have restrictions on which pumps they cover, or cover them at 100% only if they are purchased in-network. However, many plans cover any pump you choose by reimbursing you about 80% of the cost. So know your options.
- Ask your plan administrator to give you your breast pump coverage information in writing. Because this is still a confusing marketplace, phone calls might yield different information than a written request.
- Even if you’re not covered under the Affordable Care Act yet, many insurance companies do cover breast pumps. Almost all plans cover some type of breast pumps if deemed medically necessary. – See more at: http://www.hygeiainc.com/will-my-insurance-pay-for-my-breast-pump/#sthash.Lr03LnEs.dpuf
