Due to an increase in patient volume, we are offering in-person consults in our Edison office at this time. A home visit may be considered if medically necessary; please contact us directly.
A lot of families start with a virtual appointment and then come to the office when they can travel more easily.
We are in network with Aetna, United, Oxford, Cigna, and some Qualcare insurance plans provided by an employer*. Medicaid is not accepted. We bill the insurance directly for both mom and baby.
Horizon BCBS will reimburse for 2-3 visits however,
payment is often due at the time of service depending on the provider you see. A superbill will be provided for you to submit to BCBS.
*Please confirm coverage with your specific plan- each plan has different coverage
The same day cancellation fee is $50.00 with or without insurance.
We accept credit cards, HSA/FSA cards, cash or check.
In-person visits include history taking, oral evaluation of baby, breastfeeding parent exam, observed feed with pre- and post-weights, experimenting with different techniques and practicing ones that work best. Parents will receive a plan of care and a written report will be faxed to both pediatrician and OB-GYN.
Virtual consults People are often surprised that personal lactation consults can be done virtually! However, we have been conducting virtual consults long before Zoom and COVID19. We use a HIPAA-secure telemedicine platform to protect your privacy and can even bill your insurance for the session. While these consults don't take the place of a hands-on exam, you can get your questions answered from the comfort of your own home! Virtual consultations are 30 to 60 minutes.
