What will insurance cover when it comes to breast pumps?

While most insurance plans will cover the cost of breastfeeding support and supplies, it is important to keep in mind that some insurance will only cover what is considered “medically necessary” or what is appropriate and needed for the expression of milk. This means that you could be approved for a free Medela Pump In Style Advanced Starter, Spectra S2, or Lansinoh Signature Pro

While these breast pumps include the essentials needed to pump such as the motor, tubing, and breast shields, most women end up needing additional accessories to make their pumping experience more comfortable.

You might need extra accessories

Extra accessories you may need that insurance will not reimburse include bags, battery packs, cooler packs, and extra storage containers. The good news is that Aeroflow Breastpumps offers breast pump upgrades that include those bonus items that will be sure to improve your time spent pumping.

Medela breast pump upgrades

One of our most popular breast pump upgrades is the Medela Pump In Style Advanced On-the-go Tote. Not only does it include a sleek black tote bag to store your pump, a battery pack so that you can pump wherever whenever without the need of a power outlet, but it also includes a freezer bag with an ice pack and extra storage containers that will allow you to keep your milk chilled if you’re not near a refrigerator. Maybe you prefer a backpack or shoulder bag instead? 

We also carry the Medela Pump In Style Advanced Backpack and Medela Pump In Style Advanced Metro Bag.

Spectra breast pump upgrades

If you are Spectra fan, in addition to the Spectra S2, we also carry the Spectra S1 upgrade.  This breast pump upgrade includes a rechargeable battery which allows you to pump at home, in the car, or wherever the need may be.  It is super convenient to be free from the constant struggle to find a power outlet to power your pump.

Hygeia breast pump upgrades

Hygeia is another very popular brand among nursing mommies, so for those looking to upgrade to the Hygeia Enjoye LBI Deluxe, look no further.  With its rechargeable battery and stylish and roomy tote bag, it is sure to meet all your breast-pumping needs.

While breast pump upgrades do come with a small fee, it is much less expensive to purchase through a durable medical equipment company, like Aeroflow Breastpumps, as opposed to going to a big box retailer instead.
