Ameda: Affordable Care Act


#sponsored As a Mommy who struggled to breastfeed my youngest, I ended up exclusively pumping! Did you know about the Affordable Care Act?? The health insurance reform legislation signed into law that requires health plans to cover preventive services at no cost, which positively impacts new mothers and their babies. The Act states that preventive services that have strong scientific evidence of their health benefits, such as breastfeeding, must be covered and plans can no longer charge a patient a co-payment, co-insurance or deductible for these services. This is GREAT news.

This means that breastfeeding services and supplies are now covered, without cost sharing in health plans (in effect beginning in August 2012), making it easier and more affordable for new moms to use hospital-proven breast pumps that can aid in their breastfeeding success.  The Ameda®, Inc. Purely Yours® Personal Double Electric Breast Pump combines hospital-recommended technology and mom-friendly features.  It’s perfect for mothers working full-time and for those who want a fast and easy breast-pumping experience. This comfortable and effective breast pump motor weighs only 1 lb!

    I had just read about this yesterday. How wonderful this is to be covered now. One less worry for Mom’s

  2. Janet W. says:

    I’m so glad breastfeeding supplies are covered now. Those items can definitely add up!

  3. Diana @ Nanny to Mommy says:

    What did you receive, if you don’t mind me asking. I love this new legislator! 😀 Wish it was passed when I was breastfeeding. My pump was terrible!

  4. Jessica Bevil says:

    This is a great thing that has been passed but sadly, not all insurances have to follow. I know that the insurance I have do not have to cover breast pumps bc they are “grandfathered” in.
