Breast Pumps at MilkWorks
MilkWorks is a DME (durable medical equipment) provider for all private insurance plans (including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Midland's Choice & UnitedHealthcare) and for all Nebraska Medicaid plans. Your plan may cover a Personal Use Pump and/or a Medical Need (aka Hospital Grade) rental pump. For more information on the difference between a Medical Need rental pump and a Personal Use Pump, see our Pump Card.
Before coming to MilkWorks for a breast pump, we encourage you to verify that your plan provides this benefit, that you are eligible for this benefit, and that MilkWorks is listed as an in-network provider by referencing these questions.

The Medela Symphony is a Medical Need (aka Hospital Grade) rental pump designed especially for mothers whose babies are not feeding well. It is a very effective pump for initiating a milk supply or pumping exclusively when baby is not going to breast. The pump requires a personal pump kit. If you used a Symphony in the hospital and you have the kit, you do not need to purchase an additional kit.
MilkWorks is a rental station for the Medela Symphony Medical Need rental pump. Because of demand, the Symphony is subject to availability based on medical need and a mother’s access to a pump.
MilkWorks is a rental station for the Medela Baby Weigh digital baby scale, a highly accurate hospital grade scale. Insurance plans generally do not cover the rental fee for a baby scale and availability is limited.
Rental pumps and scales are available on a weekly or monthly basis. Pre-payment is required unless Medicaid coverage has been verified. Current rental fees are $30 per week or $100 per month for the Symphony Medical Need rental pump and $30 per week or $100 per month for the Baby Weigh scale. The purchase price of a Symphony kit is $50.
Pumps and scales are available at both Lincoln and Omaha locations. You are welcome to call MilkWorks Lincoln at 402.423.6402 or MilkWorks O at 402.502.0617 for additional information or see related information below.
