Insurance / Fee Policies
Loving Start Lactation Services is an in-network provider for Aetna.
For Aetna members, your insurance provider will be billed for the consultation and there will be no out-of-pocket cost to you (pending your plan verification).
Fee for Service
At this time, Aetna is the only insurance company that credentials IBCLCs as in-network providers. For self-pay (non-Aetna) clients, payment is expected at the end of the consultation. Payment can be made in cash, or by credit card. Self-pay clients will receive an itemized receipt that can be submitted to their insurance company for reimbursement consideration. Reimbursement by insurance providers is not guaranteed, but filing by the client is encouraged.
My fees are:
Lactation Consultation: $150
Follow-up Consultation: $100
Back-to-Work Consultation: $120
Pumping Consultation: $75
Prenatal Consultation: $120
Special Circumstance Consultation: $75-$150
I offer reduced fees for military families and families enrolled in WIC. Please use the CONTACT ME form to inquire about these fees.
Your consultation time has been reserved just for you. If you must cancel your appointment, we ask for a minimum 12 hour advanced notice. Late cancellations (with less than 12 hours' notice) and/or no-shows who wish to reschedule will be required to leave a 50% deposit at the time of rescheduling.
In order to keep my clients and myself healthy, I ask that only healthy family members attend appointments. If anyone in my or my client's households has a contagious illness or has been exposed to a contagious illness, appointments will be rescheduled.
Loving Start Lactation Services does not give refunds for services rendered.
*Fees, as listed, reflect discounted, same-day payment rates.
