Q: How much does it cost?
A: There is no cost to your facility or patient. Insurance and Medicaid cover breast pumps at 100% with no deductible or copays, so there will not be any patient share or unpaid balances. The provision of Breast Pumps at your facility will increase convenience for your patients. Greater convenience in obtaining needed medical equipment is generally associated with an increase in use of the equipment and more complaint use of the equipment. In this case, the convenience of obtaining the Breast Pump is likely to result in increased breast feeding which has been shown to have significant health benefits for both the breastfeeding mother and her infant. There is no additional cost to the patient for this convenience.
