Breast Bumps and Health Insurance

Under a provision of the Affordable Care Act, many health insurance companies will now cover breast pumps as well as breast feeding supplies and support (such as lactation consultants). 

See the National Women's Law Center Guide for a helpful guide, including questions to ask your health insurance.  NOTE: mothers are entitled to a pump through the news laws, but it may not be the pump they want.  Also, some pump manufacturers are making insurance versions of pumps that some women have found to be less effective.
