Most health insurance covers lactation services. After each televisit with us, we will provide you with a ‘superbill’ which is a detailed invoice/receipt of the services you received. You may be able to submit this to your health insurance carrier for reimbursement. We urge you to contact your insurance company to verify coverage and with any additional questions.
TeleLact is just getting started and we will be growing quickly, so look for expanded services to be available 24/7 in the near future! For now, please contact us if you are in urgent need of a consultation and we will do our best to accommodate you.
