Your insurance should cover the cost of my services, but each insurance company has different policies as to what they will cover. I encourage you to contact your insurance company directly to ask what your lactation benefits cover. I do require payments for services at the time of our visit unless your provider is AETNA insurance. If you have AETNA insurance a $50 refundable deposit is required to book the appointment and the visit will be billed directly to AETNA. I accept cash, check, credit card and FSA cards as form of payment for our visit. Please note that phone calls may not be covered by insurance.
