Re: FYI, breast pumps might be covered by insurance...

I have BCBS PPO of MI health insurance. And they covered the ENTIRE cost of a new Medela PISA.

My daughter's Pediatrician had to write me a "prescription" for it, saying that there was a medical need (she put "low supply," which was true) and then, the insurance rep told me to pick out whichever one I wanted and have them bill it to them.

I never received a single bill.

This was back in August 2007.

It was listed in my health benefits manual... as durable medical equipment... said it covered it. I called the insurance company to verify. I'm glad I did, because we were going to buy one out of pocket that week... saved myself some money.
