We are in-network with Aetna. Please contact your insurance to verify your coverage before your visit. Please email a photo of your insurance card (front and back) when booking your appointment. If your baby has different insurance than you, then you will need to send a photo of the baby’s insurance card too (front and back).
BCBS, Anthem, Cigna, Humana, PNOA, and Multiplan.
We take many PPOs from BCBS, Anthem, Cigna, Humana, and Provider Network of America (PNOA), and Multiplan. If your insurance card has the Multiplan symbol on it (even with a different insurance like Aetna or United), then it can be submitted to approve your visits through The Lactation Network (TLN). Please see the Multiplan symbol at the end of this section.
We partner with The Lactation Network (TLN), a third party company who works with your insurance to ensure that they cover your lactation visits. If approved, your insurance will cover 100% of the cost of the visit.
After you book an appointment, I will send a link to you in order to fill out the TLN form. Travel fees will still apply. Contact us to schedule your appointment!
All other insurances are out-of-network
We would love to partner with all insurances, but very few insurance companies will allow lactation consultants to become in-network providers.
If you do not have any of the above insurances, then you will be self-pay. We will collect your payment in full at the time of the visit. Afterward, you’ll get a receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Travel fees apply and are not reimbursable by insurance.
Ways to pay for your consultation
FSA or HSA
Lactation support and lactation supplies are reimbursable for those with an FSA or HSA. Per the IRS, “You can include in medical expenses the cost of breast pumps and supplies that assist lactation. This doesn’t include the costs of excess bottles for food storage.” Please see the IRS website for more details. Publication 502 (2021), Medical and Dental Expenses | Internal Revenue Service (irs.gov).
My preferred method of payment is credit, FSA, or HSA cards. I use Square for almost all transactions. I can tap, swipe, or insert your card. I also take cash, but I do not carry change. Please contact me with any questions.
If you do not have insurance
If you don’t have insurance and have special circumstances or hardships, please send me a message.
