In the rare event that your insurance does not provide breast pump coverage, it doesn’t cost a dime to find out, and Aeroflow Breastpumps can help you get the most affordable pump out there. One thing to remember during the qualifying process is that your eligibility for a pump is going to be totally dependent upon your insurance company and their breast pump coverage guidelines.
When should I call Aeroflow Breastpumps?
If you have recently had a baby, it is never too late to see if you qualify for a free double electric breast pump through insurance. A safe time limit to go by is the age of your child. If your little one is not a year old yet, then you may still be eligible for a breast pump. Now if you had your baby four years ago, that may be a different story, as insurance is not going to pay the coverage of a breast pump for a pregnancy that long ago. The truth is that every insurance is different and has varying guidelines pertaining to breast pump coverage.
As far as how soon should you apply for a breast pump, that is really up to you and when your family. Again how soon you can get the pump delivered to your door is subject to your insurance guidelines. However, it is usually best to wait at least until your first prenatal appointment where you can receive confirmation of pregnancy, as well as a due date. We do request a due date so that we can send your pump based on when your insurance allows us to ship it.
For example, most United Healthcare plans require that breast pump providers wait at least 30 days before your due date to ship the pump. However, feel free to fill out our Qualify Through Insurance form as soon as you know you are pregnant to get the process started. Why not get a head start on your that pregnancy to-do list? In fact, feel free to put your hubby in charge of it!
It’s never too early to get started!
If your insurance requires that we wait closer to your due date to ship the pump, then your Breastpump Specialist can schedule a follow-up date to call you back to discuss your breast pump options and get your pump shipped as soon as your insurance allows.
