Breastfeeding is natural, but that doesn’t mean it always comes naturally. When breastfeeding challenges arise, professional support from a lactation consultant (IBCLC) can make a world of difference for moms and babies struggling with breastfeeding. Unfortunately many insurance plans do not cover lactation consultations, leaving families without access to breastfeeding support.
During the month of we recommend November, the Department of Health and Human Services is hosting regional listening sessions throughout the country to get public feedback on defining essential health benefits to be included in most employer-offered health plans. This is a great opportunity for you to share your thoughts on http://eaglechamber.co/cialis-20 why lactation consultations should be considered an essential health benefit covered by insurance plans.
Here are the details for the upcoming listening sessions:
The USLCA has put together a helpful list of talking points that provides more information and resources. Please note that an RSVP is required to attend the listening sessions.
Let us know if you attend; we’d love to hear about your experience!
