Breastfeeding support, lactation consultant

I accept insurance for lactation visit coverage!

Many families receive 6+ visits at no out-of-pocket cost. Please read the entire page and proceed according to your type of insurance.

I am in network directly with Aetna and BCBST. I am also in network with BlueCare, Amerigroup – Wellpoint, and United Healthcare Community Plan for TennCare. If your family is covered by any of these insurances, please email me your name, date of birth and Member ID number so I can verify your insurance eligibility and benefits.

For other insurances –

I am excited to announce that I have partnered with Lactation Network to accept insurance billing. This is an incredible organization that helps families get the breastfeeding support they deserve, covered by their insurance. The Lactation Network guarantees every mother with insurance they cover 6+ lactation consultations with one of us IBCLCs at no out of pocket cost. They handle the paperwork and bill your insurance directly.

The Lactation Network covers – BCBS PPO, Anthem PPO, Humana, Cigna, United, MultiPlan, and UHC Commercial Plans – check for this logo on your insurance card (baby or parent coverage): Pre-approval must be obtained online through Lactation Network via the pink button below if you have one of the listed insurances. You will receive an email (often within a few hours) letting you know if you are eligible for coverage.
