3 ways to pay

1. HSA/FSA card
2. Insurance covered visits: see below
3. Out of pocket: For those not covered, I can give you a superbill to submit for possible reimbursement from your insurance.

Insurance Coverage?

Lactation consults should be covered by insurance, but each plan varies.
If insurance reimbursement is important to you, please contact your insurance company in advance to confirm coverage for lactation services.

Note that I do not bill insurance directly. You may apply for free virtual or in home visits though insurance using this link:  https://go.lactationnetwork.com/KassiReyes

I partner with The Lactation Network (TLN), a company that handles insurance billing for lactation consultants. They bill your insurance and use a portion of what they receive to pay me. For clients with insurance please click here and you should hear back from TLN within approximately one day with confirmation of coverage.   If you choose not to use The Lactation Network, or your insurance carrier does not work with with them, payment is due in full at the time of service. I will provide you with a specialized invoice (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance carrier to request reimbursement. Insurance coverage is not guaranteed with this method, and I do not refund fees based on insurance companies refusing to reimburse.   I accept Venmo, Cash, Checks, FSA/HSA payments, & some major credit cards.
