“Aeroflow Healthcare supports and encourages all mothers, and we are proud to continue helping moms get everything they need for a successful breastfeeding experience,” says Casey Hite, CEO of Aeroflow Healthcare.
This past Friday, March 24, the Republican bill that was in place to overturn the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was withdrawn before it was sent to vote. The bill, nicknamed Trumpcare, would repeal tax penalties for those without insurance, set new limits for Medicaid spending, and address various issues that Republicans found with the current bill. Many worried that the bill would eliminate existing preventive care guidelines that allow millions of families to receive specific care without being denied due to pre-existing conditions or pregnancy.
The ACA holds a provision that helps new and expecting mothers get the supplies they need to successfully feed their baby breast milk, including an insurance-covered breast pump and coordinating items. Aeroflow is optimistic that these preventative services have not been displaced and will continue to help moms get everything they need to meet their breastfeeding goals.
“We are happy to continue offering our services under the expanded access to important health benefits that the ACA has provided moms,” says Hite. “The lifetime advantages of providing breastmilk to babies are indisputable, and we hope that access to breastfeeding support continues to grow.”
In addition to supporting breastfeeding moms, the ACA’s Preventive Care guidelines also cover breast cancer screenings, well-woman care, and checkup screenings for various conditions. These services benefit women in all walks of life and promote the well-being of our nation’s mothers and children.
