Breast Assured Lactation LLC
Payment Policies

Breast Assured Lactation LLC is an Out of Network Provider and will not bill insurance companies or communicate directly with them. Breast Assured Lactation LLC has partnered with a third party provider known as “The Lactation Network” for insurance billing purposes. Clients may seek care with Breast Assured Lactation LLC as either a client of “The Lactation Network” or “Self Pay”.

The Lactation Network (TLN) Clients

Breast Assured Lactation LLC is a proud partner with TLN. The client may register to determine insurance eligibility here: https://go.lactationnetwork.com/BreastAssuredLactation. Approval usually occurs within 24 hours. Once accepted, an appointment may be scheduled with Breast Assured Lactation LLC. A credit card is required to hold the appointment in the event of a late cancellation (see cancellation policy below). TLN will handle billing directly with the client’s insurance company. The client will not owe anything at time of the appointment and should never receive a bill. An “Explanation of Benefits” may be sent to the client after the appointment, but this is not a bill. 

Self Pay Clients 

If your insurance is not partnered with TLN, you may seek care with Breast Assured Lactation LLC as a Self Pay Client. A credit card is required to hold the appointment in the event of a late cancellation (see cancellation policy below). Upon completion of the visit, Breast Assured Lactation LLC will provide a superbill suitable to submit to insurance companies for reimbursement. The superbill (which will also serve as a payment receipt) will be coded appropriately to the level of service provided during the visit. Breast Assured Lactation LLC does not guarantee reimbursement; client assumes responsibility for being aware of lactation coverage/benefits. Client agrees to pay Breast Assured Lactation LLC at the time of the visit. Preferred forms of payment are cash or check. A credit card may be used (via Square*) but an additional transaction fee of 3.6% will be applied. 

Cancellation policy (Applies to both TLN Clients and Self Pay Clients)

Time, effort and preparation go into each visit even before the visit begins. Breast Assured Lactation LLC kindly requests more than 24 hours notice for any cancellations. A late cancellation fee of $100 will be charged for any cancellation that occurs in less than 24 hours. In the event of clinician illness, Breast Assured Lactation LLC will notify the client as soon as able and will offer a virtual visit (if able) or an opportunity to reschedule.

Breastfeeding Supplies and Products

Breast Assured Lactation LLC carries a select assortment of breastfeeding supplies and products as a convenience for clients (such as Maymom flanges, connectors, pumping spray, nipple shields, feeding sets and bottles). Breastfeeding supplies and products are not covered by any  insurance providers, although in Pennsylvania they are considered tax exempt. If you are interested in purchasing any supplies, you agree to pay Breast Assured Lactation LLC upon receipt of breastfeeding supplies or products. Preferred forms of payment are cash or check. A credit card may be used (via Square*) but an additional transaction fee of 3.6% will be applied.
