Welcome! I am so happy that you are looking to schedule an appointment with me. If you would like to learn more about what a lactation consult is prior to booking, click here: https://www.forresterlactation.com/services-explai...
During this Covid-19 pandemic, I am only doing both telehealth and in-person consults in my office. No home consults yet.
While I am only in-network with Aetna, there may be the possibility of getting some insurance coverage. Please read up here: Insurance and Fees.
Of course, you can simply pay for the appointment and not concern yourself with insurance issues as well. Totally up to you.
To check insurance eligibility (again, more detail here):
1. If you want telehealth, please use the Contact Form to send me your name, insurance carrier name, ID# and YOUR date of birth.
2. If you have Aetna, book the appointment, but then you must call to confirm how many appointments you are entitled to. It is your responsibility to do this before we meet otherwise, any non-covered visits will incur an out-of-pocket charge.
3. If you want an in-person consult, you may be entitled to 3 fully covered visits, you can book now but before we meet you need to contact the Lactation Network and they will let you know if you are covered.
Decide if you want an in-person or telehealth consult.
Then chose the category that fits your eligibility. If you have any questions, please reach out so we can help you navigate.
Please check your email for forms and confirmation of the appointment. You will also be invited to a HIPAA-secure portal.
Phone consults are only intended for issues that do not directly involve the baby breastfeeding and cannot be billed to insurance.
If you need any assistance do not hesitate to email or call us with any questions or concerns. 860-255-8583 or email
