Re: ObamaCare and breast pumps???

From reading my insurance overview on changes due to the new laws, they are to pay for 100% of breastfeeding supplies if it is medically necessary. What that means is, you need to get a prescription for a pump from your doctor. I talked with my Doc and he is going to write me one closer to my due date (Feb). I would think since you have already been using a pump, you should continue to do so, therefore, making it a medical necessity you get one. I've even heard mastitis can be a reason for needing one. So, I would call the Doc and get the script, then call the insurance company. And, I've learned that my insurance company reps don't really know much about this law since it is so new. All they could really tell me was what I read on my changes overview sheet during open enrollment.
