So do you take my insurance?
Possibly! Lactation coverage is improving every day. I take select plans from all of the companies and groups highlighted in the images above.
For prenatal or breastmilk feeding clients with Cigna PPO, BCBS PPO, Anthem PPO, Humana PPO, some United PPO, a subsidiary of any of these companies, or with any card with a PNOA or MultiPlan logo on it- insurance coverage should be available at no cost* to you through The Lactation Network (TLN). The Lactation Network bills your insurance company, and then uses a portion of what they collect to pay me. For clients with these insurance plans, or for anybody who is unsure or wants to double check on coverage, please click here for pre-approval. You will hear back from TLN with confirmation of coverage within one day. There is no copay and no deductible. As long as your insurance policy does not change, you will never receive a bill- even if your insurance company denies the claims- The Lactation Network will cover the cost.
If you choose not to use TLN, if you are formula feeding & not lactating, or if your insurance company is not an affiliate with them, then detailed pricing information is available on the Appointments page. Payment is due in full at the time of service, and you may seek reimbursement afterwards. Many insurance companies will reimburse, but not all will. If reimbursement is important to you, please check in with your insurance company about your plan's coverage prior to scheduling- requesting GAP coverage may help too! I can not guarantee reimbursement and I will not refund non-reimbursed fees. I will provide a special invoice to submit to insurance following your appointment with me. The procedure codes generally are S9443 for a prenatal, 99404 and 99203 for a lactating parent as the patient, and S9444 for a formula feeding baby as the patient.
I accept FSA & HSA cards, cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card, American Express, and Venmo. If lactation or infant feeding assistance is still needed after all other options for assistance have been exhausted, but private care is not covered by your insurance, and is out of reach financially, please let me know and we can work something out- whether it is a reduced fee, a payment plan, or a barter. Financial limitations should not inhibit your access to quality care.
(*for TLN home visits there is a $45 house call fee per appointment up to 30 minutes away, or $60 for appointments 31 to 45 minutes away)
