Will CIGNA cover my breast pump?
In many cases, the answer is Yes! Following the guidelines of the Affordable Care Act, CIGNA like most other insurance programs provide for breastfeeding supplies and support at no cost to their members. However, CIGNA does offer a variety of plans with some programs “grandfathered” where they do not follow health care reform guideline and it may not cover an electric breast pump. As a specialist in working through the details of complicated insurance coverage policies, Insurance Covered Breast Pumps can help you navigate these guidelines from CIGNA to make sure that you get your breast pumps and supplies. Insurance Covered Breast Pumps carries all major breast pump brands to suit your unique needs and situation.
A prescription from a CIGNA-authorized physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or nurse midwife is required. This prescription must specify the type (manual or standard electric) of breast pump but it does not need to specify any certain brand, model or style. Breast pumps and supplies covered by CIGNA can be provided from a medical supply provider like Insurance Covered Breast Pumps.
