One of the most common questions we often receive is, “How do I pick a breast pump, and is it covered under insurance?” As a new parent, or pregnant parent, the task of figuring out not only which breast pump to get, but how to go through your insurance, can be incredibly daunting. This is why we’re excited to introduce you to Acelleron, a health and wellness company specializing in helping pregnant and nursing women qualify for their breast pump through insurance and the Affordable Care Act. We highly recommend checking out Acelleron and letting them take you by the hand through this often confusing process!
In most cases, new mothers are covered for a free breast pump through insurance anywhere from a few months before baby is born up to 1 year after birth (i.e. throughout their breastfeeding journey). This is a good rule of thumb to go by, however, the exact time period depends on your particular insurance plan.
