Attention all breastfeeding and expectant mamas! Today is the last day to enroll in a 2017 Affordable Care Act (ACA) health plan. After today you can only enroll or change plans if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
And thanks to the ACA, breast pumps are covered. This is good news for mamas because new breast pumps can cost anywhere from $250 to $2000.
Whether the ACA will be repealed and replaced is unclear, but don’t let this stop you from signing up whether you get your insurance through Medicaid or your employer, The ACA is currently the law, and the plan you choose will be your coverage for the rest of 2017.
As a company dedicated to improving life for all mamas, we sure hope that any upcoming amendments preserve breast pump coverage and all the other hard-won protections for working families, but just in case, make sure you’re covered for 2017 by enrolling in a health plan through ACA or your employer today!
