What is the Affordable Care Act?
Under The Affordable Care Act (ACA), all accredited insurance plans must provide coverage for essential health benefits, including maternity and newborn care. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, breastfeeding is one of the most effective preventative measures that mothers can take to protect their health and the health of their children. Many health plans began to implement maternity and newborn coverage on or after August 1, 2012.
What does this legislation mean for me?
If you have an ACA accredited health insurance plan, this law applies to you. These carriers are now required to provide coverage for maternity and newborn care, which includes breast pumps. Health insurance plans are required to offer coverage of breast pumps, but they may not cover the entire cost. Coverage amounts vary according to your plan and provider.
