How to Choose a Breast Pump That is Best for You
This post about why you should enlist the help of Aeroflow Breastpumps when selecting a breast pump through insurance is a sponsored post for an amazing service for us new moms.
Are breast pumps covered through insurance in the US? They sure are! When I was pregnant with my first back in 2014, I remember hearing that I was potentially eligible for a free breast pump through insurance. I was very excited to hear this because we were already spending a good chunk of change preparing for our son's arrival - it was wonderful to hear that this part of bringing a new baby into the world would potentially be covered. Below are my 5 reasons why you should enlist the help of Aeroflow Breastpumps when selecting a pump through insurance.
Aeroflow Breastpumps will guide you through the process.
I wish I had known about Aeroflow Breastpumps when I was pregnant with my son because I could have really used the help navigating the insurance waters. I don't remember all the details, but it was only during a certain period during pregnancy that a woman was eligible to begin the process of obtaining a pump. Your doctor writes a prescription for you for a pump, and then you make the calls to insurance. I know that it took multiple calls to get to the right person who could help me. I was so bogged down with work and other pre-baby preparations, that I did a terrible job on my own of working out the pump details.
My son ended up arriving 11 days early. I still didn't have my pump, and it hadn't even shipped by the time I was coming home from the hospital. I had to pay to rent a hospital grade pump. By the time my original due date rolled around, I still didn't have my pump. I had to make multiple calls to track it down. I FINALLY received my pump, more than three weeks after my son was born. I headed out to the hospital the next day to return my rented pump, baby-in-tow. I was one day late on the return and was charged for another two-week rental period.
WHAT a disaster! But now I know, that next time, there is a BETTER way! Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Enlist The Help of Aeroflow Breastpumps When Selecting a Pump Through Insurance:
1) Aeroflow Breastpumps make the phone calls for you.
You begin the process by filling out their simple Qualify Through Insurance form. They then make the call for you to your insurance company to verify coverage and reimbursement. Then, Aeroflow obtains the prescription through your doctor and then submits the paperwork to insurance once you've decided on a pump. All at no cost to you!
2) They will help you to select the best pump for you.
Aeroflow is the breast pump expert. I did not even realize that there were so many options available to me out there! Aeroflow is partnered with many pump manufacturers. Breast pump coverage will depend on your specific insurance, but once Aeroflow has these details for you, they can help to guide you to select the best breast pump for your needs through insurance. They have specialists at the ready to help compare pumps to help you weigh the pros and cons of each one.
I had a wonderful experience with one of their breast pump specialist. Her name was Tiffany. From the get-go, she was at the ready to help guide me through this process. After I filled out the Qualify Through Insurance form, I heard from Tiffany the following day to let me know that she would reach out to my doctor for me for my breast pump prescription. I provided her with my doctor's contact information, and just like that, it was handled!
I was thrilled to not have to make another phone call. It was so nice to have the help from Tiffany when it came to getting the paperwork in order for my new pump.
The next day after providing contact information, I receive a notice that I was approved for a new pump. Tiffany sent over via email all of the options that were available to me. There were nine pumps available to me at no charge, and then there were seven options available to me as an upgrade.
I then had several questions for Tiffany about the various pumps on the list that she sent over. I only have experience with one breast pump, but I was curious about a few others on the list. During this time, I went to a new mommy event, and the girl that I sat next to could not stop raving about the Spectra pump. This was a different pump from what I was used to, but Tiffany clarified all that I needed to know before I made my final ordering decision.
After another night of pump debating using the information that I had from my breast pump specialist, I decided to try the Spectra S2. I confirmed my address and then within a couple days, my new pump was in my mailbox. I was SO excited! This process could not have been more seamless or easy on me. Tiffany was a huge help and her knowledge and assistance gave me the confidence that I needed in order to check this one major to-do off my baby preparation list.
Aeroflow got me my new pump FAST!
There are often options to upgrade your pump if that is something you are looking to do. Medela, Ameda, and Spectra have the most upgradable coverage. They will work with the insurance to determine maximum coverage, and then you can work with Aeroflow on specific upgrade options.
4) They will organize the (free) shipment of your pump to your door - quickly!
Typically, a pump can be shipped 30-60 days before your due date. Aeroflow works quickly to obtain all of the details needed to be able to ship your pump. Aeroflow will reach out to you 1-2 days after receiving your Qualify Through Insurance form. They first reach out to your insurance and obtain a prescription from your doctor, then they call you to proceed. All pumps ship free via UPS Ground to your door.
Let Aeroflow handle this part of your pre-baby prep. They know you have other things that you'd rather be working on. After obtaining a pump through insurance on my own during my first pregnancy (and kinda failed!), I was happy to give up this task for pregnancy #2. Thank you, Aeroflow! I'm on board with anything to make my life easier.
