Can I Get a Free Breast Pump Through Insurance?
Good news! The Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, requires most health insurance plans to cover breastfeeding support and supplies. As a result, most women can get a breast pump covered by insurance.
At 1 Natural Way, we offer double electric breast pumps for personal use, which are covered by most insurance plans. Of course, coverage varies from plan to plan. That’s why we will verify your specific breast pump insurance benefits when you apply with us.
Types of Breast Pumps Covered by Insurance
Thanks to the ACA, most moms can get a free breast pump through insurance. In some cases, health plans will require pump rental (vs. owning) or will offer a manual breast pump (vs. one with a motor), but most plans cover a double electric breast pump.
1 Natural Way carries double electric breast pumps from the best breast pump brands. We offer:
Your specific health insurance plan will determine which models you may be fully covered for and those that have an upgrade charge.
Electric Breast Pump
Electric breast pumps, often the most potent options, require a wall outlet for operation. They come in two variants: double electric models that enable simultaneous expression from both breasts, and single electric models, which allow expression from one breast at a time.
Battery-Operated Breast Pump
Battery-operated breast pumps, akin to electric models, offer portability as their key feature. Being battery-powered, they are often hailed as hands-free or wearable breast pumps. While they may have slightly lower suction power, they are a popular choice for pumping at work, on the go, or in settings without access to a wall outlet.
Manual Breast Pump
Manual breast pumps rely on hand operation to generate the necessary suction for milk expression. While they offer fewer features compared to their electric counterparts, they are typically lightweight, portable, and cost-effective.
Hospital-Grade Breast Pump
Hospital-grade breast pumps are typically intended for multi-user rental purposes. They are particularly beneficial for mothers facing specific medical conditions that hinder direct breastfeeding, such as NICU stays, giving birth to multiples, mastitis, and other breastfeeding challenges.
What Should I Look For When Researching Breast Pumps?
Breast Pump Suction
The suction or power of a breast pump, measured in mmHG, denotes the rate at which vacuum pressure is applied to the nipple during breastfeeding. Breast pumps offer various strength levels, and you can typically adjust the pumping speed to suit your individual needs.
What Flange Sizes Come with Breast Pumps?
Choosing the right flange size, also called breast shields, is crucial for achieving proper suction, maximizing milk production, and ensuring comfort while pumping. There are five primary breast pump flange sizes available, ranging from 21mm to 36mm. The ideal flange size should typically be within 2-3mm of your nipple size. Information on the included size(s) can usually be found in the pump's manual and product description.
How Fast Should Breast Milk Be Pumped?
Many breast pumps provide multiple settings to control the speed of milk expression. While a typical pumping session lasts about 15-20 minutes, some mothers may require up to 30 minutes to completely express their breast milk. Your milk supply during each pumping session can fluctuate based on factors such as your baby's age, the time of day, your pumping or feeding frequency, pump quality, diet, and other variables.
