Frequently Asked Questions

We accept participating HSA/FSA/HRA cards pre and postnatal infant feeding services and educational classes only.

I am able to work with most PPO, Multi-Plan and Open Access Cigna/Anthem/Empire/BCBS plans for infant feeding services only. I have an insurance verification process in place that I will complete once I receive all of your booking details. You’ll usually hear back within 24 hours if received during business hours, or the next business day if after hours.

For those seeking infant feeding services who do not have one of these plans, you would be considered self pay and will be provided with a detailed invoice that is called a superbill to submit to your insurance for your direct reimbursement.  Here’s some information about the process:

  • Under the Affordable Care Act, lactation and infant feeding services should be covered in or out of network (see below Insurance Exception details below when they are not), information about benefits can be found  here and here.
  • Usually for self pay/out of network session, up to 60-70% may be reimbursed back to you. I will provide you a superbill for your visit which you’ll be able to submit for reimbursement by following the instructions your insurance provides to you (usually on the back of your card or on their website).
  • Gap Exception: In the instance when lactation services are NOT covered by anyone IN your insurance network in the area in which you live, you can apply for what’s called a gap exception which basically means that in the absence of in network providers you would request a special agreement with your insurance and myself in which they would agree to cover or reimburse the visit given the special circumstances. In this case, you can call your insurance company and provide them with the same provider information as detailed below.
  • NOTE: I cannot guarantee that you will be reimbursed as insurance reimbursement depends on your plan, your deductible, and the contracted reimbursement rate. If you are concerned about reimbursement, please call your insurance provider for more information with the following details:
