If you are covered by a BCBS, Cigna or a PNOA plan, please register for an insurance covered visit through The Lactation Network.

The charge for a consultation includes the visit, a personalized care plan, a letter to parent’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. If your insurance company is not listed above, 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 is helpful for being reimbursed by insurance.

Prenatal visit1 hour$60
Initial lactation visit 1½ to 2 hours$125
Follow-up or new concern1 to 1½ hours $60 per hour

* Since the Covid-19 pandemic, home visits are available if everyone in the home is symptom free and adults are willing to wear a mask during the visit. Telehealth visits have been found to be very helpful.
