Be in the Know: The Affordable Care Act

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

BC parents, please be aware of the new coverage guidelines under the Patient Protection and 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 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.
