Home of the Kansas City Chiefs and singing sensations Tina Turner and Sheryl Crow, Missouri is the 18th most populous state in the U.S, which means it's home to lots of expecting mothers and families in need of breastfeeding support.
Health Insurance & Breast Pumps
The Affordable Care Act, enacted in 2010, has paved the way for thousands of new moms to get breastfeeding support for free or a very low cost thanks to their insurance plans. Luckily Aeroflow Breastpumps is in network with BCBS of Missouri insurance guidelines for breast pumps!
Grandfathered Insurance Plans
With all Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, it is important that our Breastpump Specialists check to see if the particular insurance plan is considered “grandfathered” or not. A “grandfathered” plan does not follow health care reform that was created by the Affordable Care Act. “Grandfathered” plans do not cover preventive services such as cancer screenings and what you are probably most interested in at the moment, breastfeeding support which includes supplies and counseling.
Sadly, there are still many insurance plans that have opted out of healthcare reform and do not cover such important benefits as breastfeeding support. If your plan is not “grandfathered”, then the plan will, in most cases, offer preventive service benefits at no cost to you and your family which can mean a free, double-electric breast pump for you and your little one.
