Melanie is an incredible IBCLC and I am so lucky to have had her help when I encountered lactation difficulties with my second child. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about multiple aspects of breast feeding complications. She provided practical and effective strategies to help me deal with latching issues and pain with nursing. She demonstrated truly empathetic listening and has a remarkably caring nature. I would highly, highly recommend her to all moms who are breastfeeding, whether it’s their first or fifth baby!

My Clients Say...

 

"Insurance companies don't make it easy but be persistent".

 

"I paid out of pocket and it did take submitting my Super Bill 3x for my insurance to reimburse me. We needed help breastfeeding and were prepared to not have our insurance reimburse us. We were pleased they finally did!

 

"The consult was worth it to us whether we were ever reimbursed or not. We were after submitting the Super Bill Melanie provided"

 

"Melanie was clear what we needed to do to have the best shot at reimbursement. We followed it, fortunately, we were reimbursed".

 

"We tried, insurance is impossible"

I am currently not in-network with any insurance companies. You "should" be able to use your HSA/FSA funds but it would be a good idea to call your insurance company ahead. 

What does the Affordable Care Act Say?

In 2010, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law. Part of the ACA includes health insurance requiring breastfeeding support and supplies. Yes, outpatient lactation consultant visits and breast pumps. Due to each insurance plan, network and type being different, it’s best to call your insurance company directly. The ACA has different regulations for Medicaid or WIC.
