Breast pump with insurance???

We ordered ours some time ago here:

https://www.babyjoe.ch/Pflege-Ernaeh...n/Milchpumpen/

No clue if they are still among the cheapest stores.

I had a feeling that you can get them at apothekes (pharmacies) here and was curious, so just did a search and found this thread:

Apparently, they are sometimes covered by insurance.

Dunno about the insurance bit, but if you are stuck:

If you are lucky and order early, you might be able to still get one

Maybe try Milchpumpe or Breast pumps next time to actually get proper results.

I suggest going for a Medela breast pump. You can rent them from pharmacies, although all the attachment bits you need to buy. Our health insurance contributed to the cost of rental, which ended up being very cheap. (Can't remember exactly how much)
The following 2 users would like to thank NickGB for this useful post:

For things like this normally you would get a prescription from your Dr.; Buy it yourself and; send the bill to the insurance company.

Re: Best website to order a breast pump through with insurance?

Before you go for one of the high dollar super delux portable battery or corded models, look into the basic manual hand pumps. They are often much faster, quieter, easier to clean, pack and transport, and you won’t feel like a cow hooked up to a milking machine.

You can order from Galaxus. Avent sells one. Medela too. Probably others.
