I don’t think it’s required that it be electric, unfortunately.

Here is some info, https://www.healthcare.gov/what-are-my-breastfeeding-benefits/

I think it just depends on your insurance plans.  Manual ones are only like $25 so I imagine some insurance plans don’t cover much.

@lovemygsp:  They do not have to cover an electric pump.  They just have to cover some kind of breast pump, which can include manual.  Every insurance carrier has different guidelines but they comply with ACA if they cover something.

@lovemygsp:  I didn’t go through my health insurance to purchase the pump butttt idk if this will help but we got an electric evoflo double breast pump and that’s usually 100 for 45! Also some hospital will let you rent the pump for a super low price
