Breast pump benefits

  • GEHA covers at 100%, one double-channel electric breast pump with double suction capability for personal use. with a physician's prescription every two years. You must obtain the breast pump and supplies from a contracted breast pump provider based on your network (see below), if you choose to use a non-contracted provider, you will be responsible for all costs. A new prescription is required when requesting a new or replacement pump. Additional pumps may be obtained at the member's expense. GEHA members can upgrade to a different model but will be responsible for the difference in cost.
  • This benefit is limited to one pump per birth. In the case of a birth resulting in multiple infants, only one breast pump is covered.
  • All of the necessary supplies for the pump to operate are provided with a new pump order. These same necessary supplies are allowed under the Plan two times in a 12-month period following the purchase. Some manufacturers provide these as a kit. Others require the supplies be ordered individually.
  • Mothers can order as early as 30 days prior to their due date or once baby is born if they deliver prematurely. The pump and supplies will be delivered within one to five business days after order is placed.

FAQs

Q: Where can I find an explanation of maternity benefits?
A: Your GEHA plan brochure is your best source of information. Generally speaking, if you use in-network providers and have a pregnancy without complications, you will be covered at 100%. There may be circumstances in which this does not apply. Please call GEHA Customer Care at 800.821.6136 for clarification if needed.

Q: What about lab work?
A: GEHA recommends that you always use the Lab Card program offered by Quest Diagnostics. Click Lab Card for more information or call GEHA Customer Care at 800.821.6136 with any questions.

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 your GEHA plan brochure if you need clarification.
