Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, most insurance companies are now required to provide breastfeeding supplies and breastfeeding support at no cost to their members. When you learn that a breast pump may be one of your insurance-covered health benefits, you may wonder how it all works. You're in luck! At Aeroflow Breastpumps, our Specialists can help you easily navigate the Cigna insurance coverage guidelines for breast pumps and other motherhood essentials today.
Cigna Breast Pump Coverage
Cigna health insurance plans cover free breast pumps for the majority of its members. Fill out our Qualify Through Insurance Form to see which free and upgraded breast pump options are available to you under your Cigna plan. Your dedicated Specialist will verify your benefits and then contact you to let you know what your options are! Plus, there's no service or shipping charge for sending you your breast pump through insurance!
Aeroflow Breastpumps offers a variety of top-of-the-line breast pumps from Medela, Motif, Spectra, Lansinoh, Ameda, Evenflo, and more! Follow the button below to check out our Cigna-specific breast pump comparison chart.
Cigna Requires a Prescription
You do need a prescription in order to get your breast pump but don't worry, our Specialists will handle it for you. We will send a prescription request directly to your doctor on your behalf.
Note: It may take some time to obtain your prescription from your doctor, so it is a good idea to submit your information early!
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 health insurance plans that are considered “grandfathered in,” and those do not follow health care reform, which means that their plan will not include breast pump coverage.
Additional Insurance-Covered Benefits Through Cigna
Once you complete the Aeroflow Breastpumps’ Qualify Through Insurance Form to see which free and upgrade breast pumps are covered under your plan, we will also automatically check to see if your plan covers additional motherhood essentials, like new supplies for your breast pump, maternity and postpartum compression items, and lactation education!
- Additional Breast Pump Supplies Coverage
Cigna covers replacement supplies for your breast pump. This includes all of the parts that connect to the breast pump motor including tubing, breast shields and valves. If you’re eligible, we will notify you via email and phone approximately 30 days after your due date, so you can easily place your order for free additional supplies.
- Maternity Compression Coverage
Cigna plans may also cover maternity compression garments as a DME benefit, meaning they’re subject to copay and deductible. But we’ll let you know what your options are and how to easily opt into using your benefits to receive maternity compression items. Belly bands, postpartum recovery garments, and compression socks are all medical-grade garments that have been designed by healthcare professionals to provide support, relief, and stabilization for increased comfort during pregnancy and to assist with postpartum healing and swelling.
- Lactation Education
If your insurance plan covers lactation support and education, we will reach out to share your options for classes you’re eligible to attend with our certified educators. Being prepared and ready to troubleshoot any issues you may run into as you embark on your breastfeeding journey, can make all the difference in meeting your breastfeeding or pumping goals.
At Aeroflow Breastpumps, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible durable medical equipment (DME) and medical supplies to new moms through insurance. We look forward to working with you to get your insurance-covered breast pump and more delivered to your door for free!
