Know Your Coverage!
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), there are specific provisions that address lactation and breastfeeding support as essential healthcare services for women.
The ACA requires health insurance plans to cover lactation support and breastfeeding equipment. This includes:
1. Breastfeeding Support: The ACA mandates coverage for lactation counseling and support services. This can involve consultations with lactation consultants or specialists to assist women in addressing breastfeeding challenges or obtaining guidance on proper techniques.
2. Breastfeeding Equipment: The law requires coverage for breastfeeding equipment, such as breast pumps. Insurance plans are mandated to provide access to breastfeeding supplies without cost-sharing, ensuring that women have the necessary equipment to facilitate breastfeeding.
The goal of these provisions is to promote and support breastfeeding, recognizing its health benefits for both infants and mothers. By ensuring coverage for lactation support services and necessary equipment, the ACA aims to make these resources more accessible and affordable for women, encouraging and facilitating breastfeeding as a healthy choice for new mothers and their babies.
