PAYING FOR YOUR VISIT

Insurance

Yes! I accept some PPO insurance plans, through The Lactation Network. If going through them, there is a $75 home visit fee plus a long-distance travel fee of $1.25/minute beyond a 40-minute roundtrip from Maplewood, NJ. (Please note that the $75 fee for using insurance and any travel fees are  payable directly to me that will not be reimbursed by your insurance.)

Otherwise, my fee is $375 for the first in-person appointment and $300 for subsequent visits. I give you a bill that you will submit to your insurance company as an out-of-network expense BUT they are supposed to reimburse you at 100%. A long-distance travel fee of $1.25/minute beyond a 40-minute roundtrip from Maplewood, NJ will apply.

Check to see if your insurance plan has elected to work with The Lactation Network!

Sliding scale for self-pay or waiver of the home visit convenience fee may be available if you or your partner(s) meet one of these qualifications and can show proof: on WIC, on Medicaid,  teacher, unemployed, or essential worker.

If I am not in-network with your medical insurance plan
Payment is due at the conclusion of the consultation. I will help you receive reimbursement for my consultation fee from your medical insurance plan by providing you with a statement called a superbill that you can submit to your insurance for full reimbursement.

(Learn more about how to receive reimbursement.)

Please contact me directly if you receive Medicaid or do not have insurance. We can discuss a sliding scale fee for service.
