Lactation coverage

Lactation Consultations for the lactating parent are covered under "Preventative Care" as part of the Affordable Care Act of 2012 (ACA). However, some companies may not be aware of this and could potentially process claims incorrectly due to this. Please see NWLC BREASTFEEDING TOOLKIT for more information on this law and your rights to lactation care. It is recommended that you contact your insurance carrier for more specific details regarding your coverage. Please document the name of the representative you speak to and a reference number for your own record in case of any discrepancies with how a claim is processed.

FOR AETNA CLIENTS:

(may include other companies that have "AETNA" printed on card)

I have an existing contract with Aetna and will submit claims directly to them after each visit to be processed based on time and services provided. To verify, my name (Nancy Tsen) should appear in your provider directory as "In-Network".

FOR NON-AETNA CLIENTS:

(i.e. BCBS, CIGNA, United Healthcare, etc.)

Payment for the consultation will be due out-of-pocket at the time of our visit since I am not contracted with your insurance carrier. However, you will be provided with a Superbill after our visit that can be submitted by you to your insurance carrier in order to seek reimbursement.
