Insurance & Payment
I am an in-network practice with Aetna. Aetna typically covers 6 lactation visits, but please confirm your specific coverage prior to booking. Please be aware that despite what Aetna tells you, telehealth visits may entail a co-pay.
The Lactation Network
Sweetly Nourish Lactation & Baby Care is partnered with The Lactation Network! TLN can cover some Anthem, BCBS, Cigna, and United customers with certain plans. If you qualify, you can receive up to 6 fully covered lactation visits. TLN staff is quick and responsive to coverage requests, even emergent. For insurance coverage eligibility, Click this link here https://go.lactationnetwork.com/SweetlyNourishLactationBabyCareLLC and fill in my name, Julie Tower of Sweetly Nourish Lactation & Baby Care as the participating IBCLC.

What if I want a visit but I don't have Aetna and I don't qualify for a covered visit with The Lactation Network?
Other insurers will require you to pay for the visit, that day, out of pocket using the accepted payment methods listed below. The Affordable Care Act states insurers must cover lactation care. Unfortunately, it can be a difficult task for families to get the coverage they qualify for. I can't guarantee coverage, but I will give you a superbill that you can submit for possible reimbursement. I suggest calling your insurance carrier and asking to access your out-of-network benefits. I can suggest some codes they might cover, but it's never guaranteed.
Connecticare usually covers 1 home visit within the first two months postpartum. I recommend calling to confirm your plan's breastfeeding benefits and inquire if there is a limit on how much they will reimburse you. You will be responsible for the consultation fees at the time of service but will be provided the necessary forms to submit for reimbursement.
The National Women’s Law Center and their toolkit includes helpful information for speaking with your insurance provider. You can find the toolkit here: https://nwlc.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/final_nwlcbreastfeedingtoolkit2014_edit.pdf
Payment is taken at the time of visit. The following payment methods are accepted: credit card, Venmo, PayPal, Apple Pay, or cash. HSA or FSA cards accepted. I will give you a super-bill at the end of our visit that you can submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement.
I travel to all locations in Hartford County, Connecticut. Please contact me directly for travel outside of Hartford county. All inquiries considered! Please note there will be an additional travel fee for visits outside of Hartford county. Please contact for details.
