Please go to and complete the insurance information. You should hear within 24 hours if your plan is pre-approved. If approved, 6+ visits are covered 100%. This includes prenatal sessions as well.


If you are not covered by Aetna or did not receive coverage approval from Lactation Network, you will need to pay out of pocket for your appointment. This includes Magnacare, Amerihealth, Aetna subsidiaries Allied Health, GEHA and Wellnet, and BCBS Federal. However, we can provide documentation for our clients to seek reimbursement from their plans. Please contact your carrier directly for details. In many cases, the cost of a consultation can be applied to a Health Care Spending Account as well.
