Has anyone gotten a breast pump through the VA? My OB said most insurance covers them now, but I can't seem to get a clear answer. According to the VA site, breast pumps are among services provided, however I've contacted the fee basis service at the VA (who approved my prenatal care authorization) and no one seems to know how to get this done! I'm sure I'll get it sorted out one way or another, but I figured I'd ask if any fellow vet moms had gone thru the process. Thanks!
Obviously this is going to cause some financial hardships having to drive so far so often in this pregnancy, not to nention the toll this will take on my work scheduling. Does anyone know if tricare will reimburse for gas/mileage?
On top of that, I know he probably won't be here for the birth of our baby girl, and he probably won't get a chance to see her before leaving for his first duty station.
I'm just trying to get through this one day at a time, but he's my best friend </3 I need him to get through this
