Re: Rx for breast pump?

My primary won't but my secondary will, Rx or no (I can just submit a receipt). BCBS of Oregon pays at 90% at a participating DME supplier or 80% at a retail store (think Babies R Us). I have to get an Rx anyways though to get it through my primary insurance-they will just pend it for a Rx and I need them to deny so I can send it to my secondary. Even employer groups are different, when they build your plan your employer may have the choice to allow (or not) breast pumps. My husband's pharmacy carries the BCBS and they have an allowance for homebirths, Intel employees have a nearly identical plan, but they don't allow homebirths. Employer choice
