 I recently called my insurance company to get the details on what they will cover for a breast pump.  I am in luck!!  They will pay full price, no deductable or co-insurance for 1 pump per pregnancy. They also cover all replacemnet parts :)  I just have to get it through one of their participating providers. And baby has to be born before I get it,

Which one should I get?  They offer:

Hygeia Q with tote bag

Ameda Purely Yours with shoulder strap bag

Medala Advanced Personal double pump

Limerick PJs Bliss

I would choose in the same order you wrote. Hygeia, Ameda, Medela... I HATE Limerick! If I rent I'd get the Ameda Elite.

you just need a prescription for the pump faxed over to the supply company/insurance company or a phone # so they can call your obgyn to get the script (thats what mine did)

 The Limerick' suction system is different, it tries to mimic the baby's, but for me it doesn't work, it's too weak. I respond super well to all other pumps, but not this one. Instead of sucking in like the other pumps, it squeezes and suck a little very fast. It's close to the "let down" function of the Medela... I don't like it.
