Breast Pumps at MilkWorks

MilkWorks is a DME (durable medical equipment) provider for most private insurance plans (including Blue Cross Blue Shield and 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.

We have prepared a list of Questions to Ask Your Private Insurance Plan to help you determine what they cover.

As of November 15, 2017, MilkWorks is pleased to announce that we are in-network with AETNA insurance for high quality Personal Use Pumps, including Medela Pump In Style Advanced and Spectra, as well as Medela Symphony rentals (based on medical need). Don’t forget, our Pump Service Plan is provided with all Personal Use Pumps. Before coming to MilkWorks for a pump, we encourage you to verify with AETNA 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.  For more information, please call our Business Office at 402.423.6402 (ext 102).

Rental Breast Pumps & Scales

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.

Baby Scales

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 Fees

Rental pumps and scales are available on a weekly or monthly basis. Pre-payment is required unless insurance coverage has been verified. Current rental fees are $25 a week or $78 a month for the Symphony Medical Need rental pump and the Baby Weigh scale. Monthly rentals renewed on or before the due date receive a $10 discount. 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 (extension 107) or MilkWorks O at 402.502.0617 for additional information, or see related information below.
