Re: Breast pump insurance help

I have BCBS through my husbands employer, and they said they would pay 100% if using a pump is medically necessary. So, if my doctor writes a prescription for a pump, they will pay. I've seen online where women have gotten scripts written for plugged or blocked milk ducts. In my case, I have implants that were put in through the nipple, so some of my ducts were severed and won't carry milk to my nipple, so my doc said he would write the script. My doc is a bit of a stickler and I feel he wouldn't write it unless I had a good reason, but it seems some doctors will write one upon request.

Your insurance company's reply makes me think they were grandfathered in because the literature I've seen wasnt that narrow.
