Wellcare Insurance Guidelines cover a breast pump and some may even cover breast pump supplies at no cost to you and your family! But what does that process look like? And what are the specific stipulations of your policy? We have the answers to all your questions!
Does Wellcare Cover a Breast Pump?
Yes! The Affordable Care Act requires new insurance plans to cover a breast pump (some states maintain that mamas get their pumps from WIC offices).
Legislation under the recent healthcare reform statute requires that new and expectant mothers receive breastfeeding support and supplies at no out-of-pocket cost under most insurance plans. Our Breastpump Specialists make the process of getting a breast pump covered by insurance structured and reliable.
Wellcare Pump Coverage
Wellcare plans also provide payment for the costs of breastfeeding support. Studies show that breastfeeding increases the health of both Mom and baby, and also lowers overall doctor visits, so this coverage is vital. Most Wellcare plans currently cover the purchase of one electric breast pump in conjunction with each pregnancy. Some also cover tubing, breast shields, valves and storage containers. Coverage does not include items such as totes, cooler bags or extra bottles.
