Nikole Keller of LifeTree Lactation is an out of network provider. A superbill can be provided for insurance reimbursement upon request.
Insurance companies are required to cover lactation consultations under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A “gap exception” can help facilitate your full reimbursement when going to an out-of-network provider. Plans that do not have in-network providers available to you must cover out-of-network providers as though they were in-network. While insurance companies are required to provide lactation services under the ACA, many attempt to create roadblocks to doing so. Being educated and informed will help you advocate for coverage.
This is the NJ State legislation in regards to insurance coverage for lactation related supports. The statute not only includes what is required to be covered, it also includes what is not required in order to receive that coverage: 2021 NJ Revised Statute 17
