My sister was told by someone to check with her health ins. company to see if they would cover the cost of a breast pump. I'd never heard of this, and was wondering if it could actually be true?

Yep, some do. Mine didn't. dry.gif I know that most will cover it if a doctor says you NEED it, like if baby was born early, etc. Megan was born early and had trouble latching at first but my doc wasn't going to help me out anyways. Jerk! I did get the pumping kit covered both times, though.

I've not heard of it but it is logical. Nursing has been shown to lower incidences of illness in babies. Chances are that the insurance company covering you, will also be covering your baby. They'd probably save money in the long run if they did cover pumps. Kind of along the same lines of insurance companies paying for smoking cessation classes.

I found out after I already bought mine that our insurance covered it. We have BCBS of Florida.

Mine does. We have CIGNA and it covers breast pump rental or purchase up to $500. WE have to have teh Dr call and sa it's medically necessary though. Basically they call and say that I need to be able ot feed my child when I am not with them and therefore it is necessary that I have a breast pump to do it. We're in teh process of waiting of the approval letter to get Graham's. (We had one through WIC with kathleen but don't qualify anymore so we're just gonna have teh insurance buy us one)

The Avent Breast Pump is a great occasional use pump. It is easy to use, easy to clean and great at extracting breast milk. The Avent Isis Breast Pump is a very handy breast pump. The soft inner lining of the breast shield uses a flower design to help massage the breast tissue, which means you are able to express more breast milk.
