Home visits for all lactation needs in Queens & Brooklyn
The Fine Print
- The initial visit will last between 90 minutes and 2 hours (2.5-3 hours for twins), and I will do a comprehensive evaluation and assessment of you and your baby, provide you with a management plan verbally and in writing, give you preventative counseling related to lactation, and communicate with your pediatrician and with any other healthcare providers that I may refer you or your baby to.
- Self pay clients: I will provide you with a superbill suitable for you to submit to your insurance. The superbill (which will also serve as a payment receipt) will be coded appropriately to the level of service provided during the visit. You agree to pay me $300 at the time of the visit (cash, check, credit card, or FSA). If the total fee for the visit is greater than the self-pay charge, I will not bill you for that balance. You agree that any fees paid by your insurance over and above the self-pay charge will be paid to me, either directly from your insurance or from you if your insurance sends you more than the self-pay fee. If you have twins, you agree to pay an additional $50/half-hour past 2 hours. Follow up visits are billed at $150 for the first hour, $40 for each additional half hour.
- Aetna clients: I am in-network with Aetna, which means I will submit your fees for Aetna’s consideration. Aetna’s usual and customary allotment for each procedure will satisfy your account; ultimately, each client remains responsible for full payment for services. You are responsible for providing me with accurate insurance information and informing me of any changes in your insurance status; if you do not have coverage at the time I see you, you will be responsible to pay me at my self-pay rate.
- Cancellation policy: I ask that you please not cancel your appointment once booked, because I reserve that time for you and may have turned away another family needing help.
