The national durable medical equipment provider was active in achieving the necessary provisions in Bill L1215 to increase access to breast pumps and lactation consultations

ASHEVILLE, North Carolina—Aeroflow Health, a nationwide provider of durable medical equipment (DME), celebrated the passage of LB 1215, sponsored by Senator Ben Hansen.

The new law includes provisions to ensure every woman in Nebraska’s medical assistance program will be provided with an electric breast pump, which Aeroflow Health said is a step in the right direction for maternal and infant health in the state. Additionally, the law provides new mothers with ten visits with lactation consultants, starting no later than Jan. 1, 2025.

In Nebraska, Medicaid covers nearly 35% of all births. It's Aeroflow Health’s goal to ensure these mothers have access to the best medical equipment to improve, and support, these mothers’ breastfeeding and postpartum health journeys. With access to breast pumps and lactation services, mothers in Nebraska can get the education, clinical advice and support they need.

“Aeroflow has been steadfast in its mission to broaden access to care and medical supplies for new mothers across all income levels, and we are proud to honor Sen. Hansen’s work to help families across Nebraska," said Ryan Bullock, CSO of Aeroflow Health. “Aeroflow will continue to work with legislators across our nation to remove barriers to care and provide medically necessary products and services for hardworking American families.”

For more than a decade, Aeroflow Health has been committed to providing high-quality medical products and services to patients across the country, the company said. The passing of this legislation in Nebraska follows Aeroflow’s success in expanding access to medically necessary products and resources in California, Texas, Florida, Ohio and North Carolina throughout 2023.
