Are breast pumps covered by BCBS CareFirst?
Breast pumps are not only covered, but you also have a choice in which pump you choose.
You're eligible to receive your breast pump six weeks before your due date. This provides you with the added benefit of being able to get to know and read up on your breast pump before actually needing to use it.
The two most popular breast pumps covered by BCBS CareFirst are the Spectra S1 and Medela Pump in Style (PISA), but do your research. We carry tons of great breast pumps with options for all needs. Learn about choosing a breast pump here.
In addition to covering breast pumps, BCBS CareFirst also reimburses lactation consultant visits and offers video consults. This benefit covers breastfeeding consults, advice, and even support for "the baby blues" – a common term for postpartum depression many moms face.
