Frequently Asked Questions: Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) and 1 Natural Way
Does Blue Cross Blue Shield Cover Breast Pumps?
Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) is one of the most well-known insurances in the United States, so millions of women will eventually want to know if they can get a free breast pump through Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance.
For most BCBS moms, the answer is YES! Under the Affordable Care Act, non-grandfathered insurance plans are required to cover a breast pump. Breast pumps are often covered under the Women’s Preventative benefit and are sometimes covered under the durable medical equipment (DME) benefit.
What’s more is that Blue Cross Blue Shield typically allows one breast pump per pregnancy (a great benefit!) and a double electric breast pump is usually covered (vs a manual breast pump or breast pump rental).
Coverage varies from plan to plan, however. To learn exactly what your plan covers, you should contact the member services number on the back of your insurance ID card. Or, fill out our qualification form and we will verify your coverage.
What other BCBS benefits can 1 Natural Way help me with?
Recovery garments provide comfortable compression on the abdomen, back and thighs to reduce swelling and soreness and shorten recovery time, while support bands ease discomfort by relieving pregnancy-related pressure from the abdomen, hips, and lower back. Maternity compression stockings help reduce swelling and discomfort and promote circulation in the legs.
Moms who have Carefirst BCBS insurance can also receive breast pump replacement parts and accessories through 1 Natural Way as part of our Resupply Program.
What are the details of my BCBS breast pump coverage?
The great thing about Blue Cross Blue Shield is that you can go anywhere in the United States and be covered under the BCBS network. The tricky thing about BCBS is that it’s different from state to state and plan to plan.
Since the breast pump benefits and the breast pumps covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield can vary greatly from state to state, we recommend calling the BCBS member services number on the back of your insurance ID card with specific questions.

What breast pumps does BCBS cover? Can I get any pump I want?
Your Blue Cross Blue Shield pump benefits depend upon the state plan under which you are covered and/or the state in which you reside. Once we verify your insurance, we’ll let you know what breast pumps are fully covered (and which are not).
1 Natural Way offers the following breast pump brands to choose from: Spectra, Medela, Elvie, Ameda, Willow, Freemie, Lansinoh, Ardo and Motif. We offer standard and deluxe models, as well as many great portable and hands-free breast pumps that are so useful for busy moms.
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.
