Iowa Moms Sue Health Care Provider for Not Covering Breastfeeding Support

Iowa Moms Sue Health Care Provider for Not Covering Breastfeeding Support
Two nursing mothers are suing Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Iowa because they claim the insurance company denied their claims for breastfeeding support from properly trained specialists. 
 
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court, alleges that Wellmark worked around the policy by failing to provide a list of approved professionals in its network who are specialists in breastfeeding care.  This oversight, intentional or not, forced many nursing women to pay out-of-pocket for services that should have been covered.
