Fees & Insurance for Lactation Consults


The Affordable Care Act mandates that breastfeeding support be covered, but not all plans meet the criteria for coverage, leading to a lot of confusion. The Lactation Place does a great job of breaking all this down, if you’d like more information!


  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona

  • Arizona Care Network

If you and/or your baby have one of these companies, your insurance will be billed directly for your lactation consult. Make sure to call your insurance company to verify your benefits before your scheduled appointment! You are financially responsible for any co-insurance, deductible, co-pays, or other fees that insurance does not pay and will receive an invoice for payment, if any is due, after your benefits have been processed.


If you are not using insurance for your visit, you can expect to pay the following discounted fees:

  • $180 for initial lactation consults/90 minutes

  • $120 for follow-up consults/60 minutes

    Payment is due at the time that services are provided. Cash, check, credit/debit cards, and HSA/FSA cards are accepted.

    An invoice will be provided for you to submit to your insurance company. Reimbursement is not guaranteed. 

Discounts available for families currently enrolled on AHCCCS and/or WIC-please contact me to discuss details!
