How to get a free Breast Pump!

Yes you read that title correctly.  I didn't believe it myself.  I came across this Pin on Pinterest, and after reading the article I decided to check into it, and I was not disappointed.

The first thing I did after reading the article was call my insurance company, I have Blue Shield of California (HMO).  I called the member number on the back of my card and asked customer service representative if breast pumps are covered under my insurance plan. The representative checked my plan and stated that I was covered by my plan for any breast pump up to $169.  She then gave me a list of 5 approved vendors and their phone numbers (a few of them had websites too). 

I did my research and decided to place my order with Yummy Mummy, their website is great and easy to navigate.  I gave them all of my information including my medical insurance information online.  A week later I received an email stating they were processing my order (this happens once your insurance is verified) and about a week after that I received a shipping confirmation and my pump arrived by UPS 4 days later.  So, if you're in need of a breast pump, I highly recommend checking with your insurance company!
