Upgrade your Insurance Breastpump

Upgrade your Insurance Breastpump

If you’ve been following our blog you would have noticed we recently discussed Medela’s Pump In Style Advanced Tote as well as Hygeia’s EnJoye™ LBI Breastpump with Deluxe Tote Set.  Although these breastpumps are from different manufacturers the one thing they have in common is they are both insurance breastpump upgrades.  Insurance breastpumps do not always provide breastfeeding moms with the extra features they want to make their breastfeeding journey as efficient and convenient as possible.  Don’t get us wrong, insurance breastpumps are great!  However, if you want a tote bag, accessory starter kit, breast milk cooler with ice pack, and other essential accessories, you will want to upgrade your insurance breastpump.

Tucked away within the Affordable Care Act is a provision that requires insurance plans to provide breastfeeding support, counseling, and equipment to new and expectant moms.  Insurance plans will cover basic breastpumps and this is a giant step forward in terms of support for breastfeeding; however, many basic insurance pumps do not come standard with the essential accessories for on-the-go moms.
