Billing through insurance does not guarantee 100% coverage. Your plan may apply a co-pay, cost sharing or deductibles. We always encourage you to contact your insurance company prior to services to clarify any questions regarding your specific coverage options.
We work closely with the breastfeeding parent and the baby in most of our consults. Our assessments and care plans are focused on creating a successful plan for the parent and the baby. Please note in the case of supporting the dyad (parent and baby) there will be 2 separate claims submitted through insurance.
*** Please note, CIGNA is stating Lactation Room is in-network however, we are not. This is an error on their Claims side of the company. We've been working with them to get this error corrected ***
