The answer is the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This pass in legislation allows insurance recipients to receive more benefits that are completely covered by your insurance. If your plan is ACA compliant, then Aeroflow is able to assist expecting moms for little or no cost!

All About the ACA

The Affordable Care Act mandates that all health insurance plans provide breastfeeding support, counseling, and equipment for the duration of mom breastfeeding. The plan does not always stipulate when the services may be rendered. Some polices will mandate needing a prescription with shipping constraints. This can mean anywhere from one month prior to due date to after the baby is born. While other policies will cover at 100% and can ship at any time during the pregnancy.

Grandfathered Plans

The only exception to the ACA is the grandfathered plan. Grandfathered plans are older policies, normally through employers, that had the option to opt out of being compliant with the Affordable Care Act. It is still likely that if the policy is grandfathered that insurance will still cover the breast pump!


Prior authorizations are required for other insurance plans, typically found in Medicaid plans. This means an OBGYN would need to write a prescription deeming why the mother would need a breast pump. The prescription would be sent to the insurance, who would then decide if it is acceptable for mom to receive one. Once approval is received, the mother can proceed with placing her order!
