When you think of things that your insurance covers, you may be picturing regular doctor’s visits and medications or emergency situations. But ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed, most insurance companies now cover breast pumps and related accessories, like bottles, milk storage bags, flanges, extra tubing, and more. If you have a Humana Medical Plan, you may be wondering, “What breast pumps does Humana cover?” Not to worry because The Breastfeeding Shop is here to provide you with Humana breast pump information. And if there are any other questions you have that we don’t cover here, you can always contact us for more details.
If you meet medical necessity criteria, Humana will cover an electric breast pump for you. There is not a specific brand that they cover, so you are able to pick the breast pump brand that’s right for you. If you’re not exactly sure which brand that is, that’s okay. We’re here to help you out. Some of our favorite electric breast pumps at The Breastfeeding Shop include the Spectra pumps as well as the Medela Pump in Style, Elvie, Freemie Independence, and the Motif Luna pump. And we have many more breast pump models than just those.
We understand that researching all the different pump options can be a bit overwhelming. With a baby on the way, you have more than enough preparations and considerations to take care of. So, let us help you pick your Humana breast pump. Even if your best friend, coworker, or cousin recommends a certain pump, it doesn’t mean that will be the right breast pump for your specific needs. To learn more about your Humana electric breast pump, feel free to reach out to our helpful and knowledgeable team. We can break down the pros and cons of each breast pump model for you. Some pumps are noisier and more powerful than other brands that are meant to be quiet, concealed, and portable.
When Should I Order My Pump with Humana?
Typically, Humana insurance guidelines want you to reach 30 weeks gestation before ordering your insurance pump. But it’s best to order a breast pump prior to your due date so that it will be there for you and your baby when you need it. Even if you direct breastfeed and end up not needing to pump, it still doesn’t hurt to have it there in case of an emergency situation.
