Thread: EBM Fortifier and Insurance

    Question EBM Fortifier and Insurance

    Hello everyone,

    Does private insurance cover ebm fortifier for babies that are in the NICU? It's not an over the counter medicine and it is essential for breast feeding premature babies in the NICU so shouldn't it be covered?

    Thanks

    You'd think, but it might not be. I don't have preemies, and we sure aren't in the NICU, but I have a cleft baby who cannot nurse, and I can't get the insurance company to pay for anything at all related to feeding. Including the special feeders he HAS to have or he literally cannot eat.

    Good luck! And maybe someone will stop by and have information on this for you!
