United Healthcare is dedicated to helping people live healthier lives, which is why they encourage those who have their insurance to receive preventative and support care services.

As far as breastfeeding support goes, United Healthcare has held steadfast to their goal. Granted, The Affordable Care Act does require insurance companies to provide breastfeeding support for new mothers, but the degree and extent of that coverage will vary depending on the insurance provider. United Healthcare provides great options for pregnant and new mothers.

As of January of 2014, United Healthcare covers the following:

  • Double Electric Breast Pump. According to their Preventative Care Services Page, United Healthcare will cover the cost of a double-electric breast pump.
  • The mother can only acquire said breast pump 30 days before the birth of their baby and up to 365 days after the day of the baby’s birth.
  • Mothers must go through a durable medical equipment (DME) provider, such as Aeroflow Healthcare, to obtain their breast pump.
  • The mother cannot purchase her pump through a retail store such as Target, Walmart, or Babies R Us.
  • Lactation Consultation. United Healthcare does offer lactation consultation without cost sharing if it is in network. However, this would all depend on the individual's plan and they would need to consult with their United Health Care Representative.
