Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, most insurance plans are now required to provide breastfeeding supplies and support at no cost to their members. At Aeroflow Breastpumps, that means we see hundreds of different insurance plans daily. Cigna is one of the biggest insurance providers we see on a daily basis and our Breastpump Specialists can help you navigate the Cigna insurance guidelines for breast pumps today.
Cigna requires a prescription for a breast pump
Most members with Cigna are lucky because their insurance provider is widely known as following health care reform and paying for electric breast pumps for new mommies. One thing you may want to mark down on your to-do list is to get a prescription at your next doctor’s appointment, as Cigna insurance does require a prescription on file before we can ship the breast pump.
Too much on your mind to remember to ask while you are at the doctor? Don’t fret! The Breastpump Specialists at Aeroflow Breastpumps can handle it. We can send a prescription request over to your doctor in no time.
Get a free Medela or Spectra pump through insurance
Did we mention that most Cigna plans will cover a free Medela Pump In Style Advanced Starter or Spectra S2? That’s right! And those are only a couple of the breast pump brands we offer. We carry all major breast pump brands, which means we will have the perfect pump that suits you and your new family.
Every plan is unique
Please keep in mind that while most insurance plans will provide an electric breast pump for free for lactating and expecting mothers, everyone’s plan is different. Many times we have mothers with insurance plans that are considered “grandfathered” and do not follow health care reform, which means that the plan will not cover an electric breast pump. They might say “My friend has the same insurance and got her breast pump for free,” but unfortunately, while two mothers may have Cigna insurance they may have different plans tailored to their specific needs.
