World Breastfeeding Week Gift – The Affordable Care Act

I woke up this morning to the best news! You may have heard already, but it was announced a few days ago that the Affordable Care Act is now a reality! The Affordable Care Act ensures that women’s care visits are covered by insurance – without copay. This includes well-women visits, domestic violence screening and breastfeeding support. And rental pumps for pumping mothers are also included under this act! These guidelines don’t have to be in place by all insurance companies until August 1, 2012 – but we are well on our way to getting women the coverage that they need! Some insurance companies may implement the coverage sooner.

The guidelines themselves can be found here. And you can read a detailed explanation of the coverage here.

What a great way to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week!
