What is the ACA? Does this apply to me?
Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law in 2010. There are many parts of the ACA, but one of the most valuable is that ACA requires health plans to cover breastfeeding support and supplies. Many health plans began implementing this coverage on or after August 1, 2012.

If you have a private insurance carrier or commercial insurer, this law applies to you. Currently this law does not cover Medicaid or WIC.
