If you have AETNA insurance, your consult may be covered with no out-of-pocket investment. If you have a different insurance policy, payment will be due at time of service; however, you will be given a superbill that you can file with your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Consultations are provided by certified lactation consultant, Jalyn Spencer-Harris (IBCLC).
