Breast Pump Coverage under the Affordable Care Act is Inconsistent and Confusing

Aeroflow Healthcare has created a seamless process to help mothers acquire necessary equipment

Electric breast pumps range in price from $300 to $1,000. Now under the Affordable Care Act, and depending on the mother's insurance plan, all or part of the cost can be covered.

With the start of the 2013 plan years, Jennifer Jordan, representative from Aeroflow Healthcare, said she's seen lots more mothers wanting to use their new coverage -- and even more confusion about how the coverage works.

While the Affordable Care Act requires insurers to cover the cost of breastfeeding equipment, each insurance company is fulfilling that mandate in different ways.

Each insurance provider will have different criteria, such as buying from a medical supplier as opposed to a major retail outlet. Also, types of pumps offered, co-pay, deductibles and medical necessity are all factors to be considered.

For busy moms who want breastfeeding support, Aeroflow Healthcare’s Pediatric Division has created a quick and seamless process to verify insurance benefits and have the equipment delivered.

Aeroflow Healthcare has a fast-growing pediatrics division that supplies breast pumps, nebulizers and other services nationwide from our nine offices in the Southeast. Aeroflow’s mission is to help patients live a better life through compassion, excellent service and exceptional products. Call 1-888-345-1780 or visit and we’ll do all of the legwork for you.
