We’re in for an exciting ride together, crafting a personalized plan that perfectly fits your family’s needs.

Did you know that your health insurance should reimburse you for your lactation consultation? AETNA has even had in-network IBCLC’s waiting for you (they just won’t tell you!). Here is how to communicate with your insurance about reimbursing your lactation consultation.

Please contact your insurance during pregnancy so you can line up lactation help before the birth.

Whether you are still pregnant and planning on breastfeeding or gave birth and you are struggling or have a million questions- lactation consultation is just as important as birth support. What is a lactation consultant/IBCLC? An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is a health care professional who specializes in the clinical management of breastfeeding. IBCLCs are certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, Inc. under the direction of the US National Commission for Certifying Agencies.

In order to obtain the IBCLC credential, a candidate must complete educational requirements in the Health Sciences, Human Lactation, and Breastfeeding. These courses include Anatomy and Physiology, Psychology, Sociology, Nutrition, Infant and Child Development, and Introduction to Research to name a few. In addition to the educational requirements, candidates are expected to accrue a minimum of 1000 clinical hours where they are directly supervised by experienced IBCLC’s. Upon completion of their education and clinical experience, they must pass the IBCLC exam set by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE). Most New York State health insurance companies will reimburse for lactation consultations.

Why is this important to know? Because there are other lactation certifications that do not qualify to get reimbursed by insurance. Only IBCLC’s can get reimbursed by insurance since we carry an NPI number (ID for medical professionals).

Lactation consultations can be virtual or in-person.
Virtual: Our time together lasts 60-90 minutes and the rate is $295 per visit for singletons or $347 for twins.
In-person: Our time together lasts 60-90 minutes and the rate is $325 for singletons or $475 for twins.
