Petition started to get insurances to pay for formula for new moms with mastectomies

News

“The Breasties,” a non-profit organization has partnered with “Bobbie,” to fight for legislation to get insurances to pay for formula for new mothers who have undergone a mastectomy. Mothers can get a free breast pump through the Affordable Care Act, but advocates for this cause say that doesn’t make sense for moms with mastectomies.  Insurances will cover for formula or donated breast milk only if the baby has a medical condition.

Now, The Breasties and Bobbie have started a petition to push for policy changes.
