Retrieved from Healthcare.gov
It is important to understand that each health care insurance plan will determine their specific lactation support and services, as well as breast pumps and supplies. You can access more information at the following government websites:
“Pregnant and postpartum women will have access to comprehensive lactation support and counseling from trained providers, as well as breastfeeding equipment.”
Breastfeeding services and supplies must be covered with no cost sharing (no co-payments, co-insurance, or deductibles) in plan years starting after August 1, 2012. Your insurance provider is your source to confirm what services and types of equipment are covered under your plan.
Now Breastfeeding Services and Supplies are covered Without Cost Sharing in Health Plans Starting August 1, 2012
