The Model Policy: Payer Coverage of Breastfeeding Counseling Services, Pumps, and Supplies was created by USBC to identify best practices for payers that appropriately meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and ensure adequate delivery of breastfeeding support, using the language, format, and terminology applicable for expedient, meaningful use by this audience. The Model Policy is intended to guide payers in determining insurance coverage. As such, it focuses on those health care professionals who are customarily credentialed by insurers3 to provide health care services in today’s insurance marketplace. This policy does not address community-based counseling and support options, offered by organizations and individuals in settings not currently covered by insurance.
