The charge for a consultation includes the visit, a personalized care plan, a letter to mom’s or baby’s health care provider, and up to three 10 minute follow-up phone calls, texts or e-mails. Although the Affordable Care Act mandates coverage of lactation services, each insurance company determines what services and professionals they will cover. Paperwork with the appropriate codes is provided for the family to submit a claim to their insurance company for possible reimbursement. A referral from your or your baby’s health care provider can be helpful with insurance.
