Whether you're going back to work or have responsibilities that mean you need to be away from your baby for a few hours, a powerful and efficient breast pump can make all the difference to help you continue breastfeeding. But double electric pumps like the popular Medela Pump in Stylecan come with a daunting price tag of around $300. 

That's one reason why a new regulation, which went into effect August, has been put in place requiring insurance companies to cover breast pump rental and lactation consultants -- without co-pays or deductibles. Translation: you can now rent a breast pump gratis! Even better -- some insurance companies may cover the cost to purchase one.
