Insurance-Covered Breast Pumps for Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Moms
1 Natural Way makes the process as easy as possible to obtain a breast pump through your Anthem BCBS benefits. As an authorized Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield breast pump provider, we not only offer the highest quality breast pumps, but can also provide other insurance-covered products like pregnancy support bands, postpartum recovery garments and maternity compression stockings.
1 Natural Way offers the best breast pump brands, both standard and deluxe models. Look for portable breast pumps from Ameda, Lansinoh, Motif and Ardo, as well as hands-free breast pump options by Spectra and Medela. We even have wearable breast pumps from Elvie, Freemie and Willow!
Whatever you choose, our goal is to make it easy to get your pump and other benefits, so let us do the heavy lifting!
To receive a breast pump through your Anthem BCBS insurance policy, simply fill out our qualification form. Once we receive your information, we will verify your coverage and notify you of your eligibility, via email, within 1 to 2 business days.
In the email, we will let you which breast pumps you can choose from, as well as other products you are eligible for through your Anthem BCBS plan (upgrade options may have an out of pocket expense because they contain additional items that are not covered by your insurance policy).
After you select your breast pump, our team will work with your physician's office to obtain a prescription so that we can bill Anthem BCBS. Once we receive your prescription, your breast pump will ship (we cannot ship your breast pump until a prescription is received from your physician). Most moms will receive their breast pump within 7 days of filling out our intake form!
Frequently Asked Questions: Anthem Breast Pumps and 1 Natural Way
Does my Anthem breast pump benefit cover deluxe pumps, like wearable breast pumps or hands-free breast pumps?
Yes and no.
Your Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance will fully cover the fantastic, hands-free Ameda Mya Joy pump! A number of “deluxe” models, however, are not fully covered and require some out-of-pocket contribution.
Here’s why. Nearly every insurance plan has an “allowable amount” for a breast pump (find out more about allowables and insurance coverage). High allowable amounts mean you can choose from a larger selection of fully covered pumps, including high-end, deluxe models. If your allowable amount is on the lower end, you will have fewer pumps that are 100% covered. Other factors can also affect coverage.
You always have options! If you prefer a more expensive pump than one that is fully covered by your plan, you can apply the cost of a covered breast pump toward the cost of a pump of your choice. We call these “upgrades.”
1 Natural Way will always help you get the best possible pump through your insurance plan.
What other maternity and postpartum wellness benefits do I have besides my Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield breast pump?
In addition to a breast pump, eligible Anthem BCBS moms could also receive postpartum recovery garments, pregnancy support bands, and maternity compression stockings - sometimes fully covered! These products are extremely beneficial in promoting comfort and wellness before and after giving birth.
Postpartum garments provide comfortable compression on the abdomen, back and thighs to reduce swelling and soreness and shorten recovery time, and compression stockings help reduce swelling and discomfort and promote circulation in the legs. Support bands ease discomfort by relieving pregnancy-related pressure from the abdomen, hips, and lower back.
