As Nurse Practitioners
We are Medical Providers
Please note, NEMF does NOT bill under YOUR Affordable Care Act (ACA) Lactation Benefit. All claims are processed through the medical insurances of both the Mother and the baby according to your health care plan design.
HMO & EPO policies will require a referral from the mother’s Primary Care Physician as well as the baby’s Pediatrician. Copays, Co-Insurance, and Deductibles may apply to services pending each individual mother and baby insurance policy.
