Most commercial insurance companies will pay 100 percent of the cost of an in-person lactation consultation with no deductibles or co-pays. There is generally no coverage limit on the number of visits, so moms can receive guidance as many times as needed.
The Atrium Health Floyd Women's Care Lactation Services office will file the necessary paperwork with commercial insurance companies for moms to receive this service.
