Insurance Reimbursement

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) enhances the accessibility and affordability of breastfeeding for millions of American women. The legislation mandates that all new health plans must offer specific preventive services at no additional cost, encompassing coverage for breastfeeding support and supplies. However, plans existing before March 23, 2010, with no significant changes (considered “grandfathered”) are exempt from covering preventive services, including breastfeeding benefits. Confused about reimbursement? You are not alone. The National Women’s Law Center has designed a complimentary toolkit to help you better understand your insurance coverage under the healthcare law and how to request reimbursement. To access the toolkit, please click here. For further information, you can reach out to them at 1-866-745-5487 or prevention@nwlc.org.

While the majority of insurance companies include coverage for lactation consultations, we advise verifying your plan details with your insurance carrier. Although Newborn Nirvana does not handle insurance claims internally, we will furnish you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement upon the completion of our services.

Self-Pay Fee

We accept cash, check, Zelle, and Venmo.
