Does My Health Plan Cover Breast Pumps?
Breast pumps are considered durable medical equipment, or DME. Most Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan plans cover DME along with breastfeeding support, supplies and counseling. Some plans available through large employers may not cover DME. Here’s how to find out if your plan covers breast pumps.
Most members can check their benefits online to see if durable medical equipment such as breast pumps are covered.
If you can't find what you're looking for, please call the customer service number on the back of your ID card and we'll be happy to help.
If a breast pump is part of your benefits, your doctor must write a prescription for it.
To find a supplier, look for one on our website or go to Find a Doctor on the Blue Cross mobile app, and search for durable medical equipment.
