Elevate and Elevate Plus members can earn $100 in Wellness Pays rewards when you visit your OB/GYN or midwife within the first trimester of your pregnancy.

A first-trimester doctor visit is the foundation for effective prenatal care and can help ensure mother and baby’s good health in the important early stages of pregnancy.

These rewards can be used for qualified medical expenses, like physician office visits, medications and more.

Breast pump benefits

Elevate and Elevate Plus Plan Coverage

GEHA covers one double-channel electric breast pump for personal use. This benefit is limited to one pump every two years. There is no cost to the member when the designated pump is obtained through a contracted provider.

If you decide to purchase a second pump within a two-year period, or choose to purchase a manual breast pump, or hospital-grade (multi-user) pump, it will not be covered by the plan. GEHA members can upgrade to a different model but will be responsible for the difference in cost.

GEHA will also cover all necessary supplies needed for the pump to operate at no cost to the member. Some manufacturers include these supplies with the pump as a kit. Others require that the supplies be ordered individually. All necessary supplies are allowed under the Plan two times in a 12-month period, when purchased through a contracted provider.

When to order your pump

Members can order as early as 30 days prior to their due date or once baby is born if they deliver prematurely.

Where to get your pump

You may obtain the breast pump and supplies from a contracted (in-network) provider (such as your OB/GYN). Not all providers are contracted to supply breast pumps (or associated supplies), so confirm with you provider if they are contracted with the UnitedHealthcare Choice Plus network to provide breast pumps. A list of nationwide providers is included below- these providers can ship on a nationwide basis. Providers may have different brands or models in stock, which are subject to change.

If you choose to use a non-contracted (out-of-network) provider, you will be responsible for costs as outlined in the plan brochure. You will not be reimbursed for a pump or supplies purchased at a retail store.
