Tell Insurance Companies to Fix Their Breastfeeding Coverage

 

Tell Insurance Companies to Fix Their Breastfeeding Coverage

Thanks to the health care law, women are able to get breastfeeding support and supplies — including breast pumps and lactation support and counseling — without co-pays and deductibles. This groundbreaking new insurance benefit provides moms with the support and tools to breastfeed successfully and reduces cost barriers for women who want to breastfeed.

But after looking at hundreds of health plans and talking to mothers across the country on our CoverHer hotline, we’ve found that a lot of insurance companies make this benefit difficult, if not impossible, to get. As a result, many parents pay hundreds of dollars to get help with breastfeeding that should be available at no-cost.

Insurance companies are breaking the law and hurting moms. Tell insurance companies to fix their breastfeeding coverage now.

 

Dear America's Health Insurance Plans,

Thanks to the health care law, women are able to get breastfeeding support and supplies — including breast pumps and lactation support and counseling — without co-pays and deductibles.

But insurance companies that are part of your membership are breaking the law by creating limitations and barriers to no-cost breastfeeding supplies and services.

It's time for health plans to stop failing moms. We urge you to get your members to comply with the law today.

Sincerely,
