Anthem reduces Breast Pump coverage April 1

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!

Anthem is reducing their coverage for Electric Breast Pumps so much that patients may not be able to receive a quality breast pump effective 4/01/18. Anthem mothers may no longer have access to a quality double-electric breast pump necessary to support breast milk feeding.

Electric breast pumps are an important resource for maintaining a milk supply to feed your baby.  Breastfed babies have reduced incidences of diarrhea, colds and viruses. Breastfeeding lowers your baby's risk of SIDs by almost half. Expressing breast milk is life saving for infants born prematurely and having to stay in the NICU. We need to speak up to show Anthem that breastfeeding is the best food for your baby.
