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.
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.

A: Your maternity benefit includes prenatal care, delivery and postnatal care. Breastfeeding and lactation support services are covered. Breast pumps are covered at 100% with a physician’s order. Your benefit will be determined by whether services are provided by an in-network provider as described in the GEHA plan brochure.
Q: How much time do I have to add my baby to my GEHA policy?
A: You have up to 60 days to add your baby to your plan. You should contact our Enrollment Department at 800.821.6136 for details.
Q: Is my baby covered under my maternity benefits while he/she is in the hospital?
A: The baby will be covered for normal nursery charges only. If your baby requires special or non-routine care, he/she will be considered under the general medical benefits as a separate person on your policy. This includes circumcision. Please see the GEHA plan brochure if you need clarification.
