    Default Prescription

    I was wondering if anyone got a prescription for a breast pump? If so, what kind was it? Was it rental? How long did you get it for?
    Thanks!

    First, check if your policy allows for durable medical equipment and if ask if breastpumps are covered. If so, then ask your doctor to write a prescription (if he/she needs help, there is info on the Medela website). With a prescription, you can usually either get a full size double electric to own (such as the Medela Pump In Style) or it covers the pump kit and rental for a hospital grade such as the Lactina.

    It never hurts to ask!
