All About the Symphony

The hospital grade breast pump, the Medela Symphony includes their patented 2-phase expression technology, which mimics natural breastfeeding patterns.

Medela’s hospital grade breast pump also has two built-in, rechargeable batteries so you can pump on the go, and allows for single and double pumping. While most insurance plans do not typically cover the cost of the purchase of the Medela Symphony (the pump costs at least $1500-$2000+ retail), some insurance plans will cover the rental of one for a period of months following the birth of your baby.

Hospital Grade Pump & Medical Necessity

Many insurance plans that cover the cost of renting Medela’s hospital grade breast pump require that there is a “medical necessity” for a hospital grade pump, or in other words, some type of medical need other than just the fact that you are a lactating mother. A good example of medical necessity is when the baby is in the NICU or has some type of feeding issue such as a cleft palate.

The good news is that Aeroflow Breastpumps has a dedicated Breastpump Specialist that handles all hospital grade breast pumps and they will contact your insurance and verify if your insurance will cover the rental of one, such as the Medela Symphony.

The ACA & Breast Pumps

Speaking of breastfeeding, is it time you checked breast pump off your to do list? Recent healthcare reform under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has provided thousands of mothers across the United States with their very own breast pump for free! The ACA ensures that mommies receive free breastfeeding support, including but not limited to, breastfeeding counseling and a free double electric breast pump under most insurance plans.
