I'd like a new one if insurance will cover it, but I don't know if they will as I'm a SAHM.
im a wahm who alternates freelance gigs with being a sahm but i dont think it matters what your status is, as long as you are still covered by your ins. call member services and ask- a breast pump is covered for me 100% under the new preventative guidelines and i think this is now nation-wide for many plans. i just have to order one through a medical supplier (like Edge Park) either 30 days before or 30 days after my delivery and the supplier will bill my insurance- no script necessary.

the future moms program is a separate perk, you can use the money for a breast pump but you dont have to if you can already get one for free.

We currently have the same insurance and have a FAR worse plan and I just looked through the whole website and didn't even see this as an option for me. Did you have to call them or did they call you? Honestly at this point I would just be happy if they covered my delivery. Though I would use whatever I could get from them.
i ignore the advice from the nurse on the hotline, lol. she was like, "do you get the flu shot??? you know according to the CDC yadda yadda" i said, "no, i get the flu".

they actually sent me a flyer two weeks after my first midwife appt. like complete stalkers and it had this note at the bottom that it is sent "randomly" to women of childbearing age and doesnt mean that they know im pregnant. yeah right! anyhow, i called them to get more info and ended up signing up. i feel you on the hoping they cover your delivery- i have anthem BCBS and they wont cover any part of my midwives since they are out of network. our old insurance at least paid 75%. :/

I must have the bottom of the barrel BCBS (TRS in TX) - they don't offer anything besides a manual breastpump.

Wow - $300 is great. I have BCBS too but the max is only $50 toward a birth class.
