While there is no substitute for an in person, in-office or in-home consultation visit, that is not always possible. In those times Skype or FaceTime video chatting is a great way to provide support. Dianne Cassidy, IBCLC provide consultations with people all over the world. Please contact Dianne and together we can decide if this is an option for your situation.
Some insurers cover services for IBCLCs, while others do not. Private pay is required at the time of the service, but Dianne will provide you with paperwork and instructions on how to apply for reimbursement from the insurance company. If you have a Flexible Spending or Health Savings account, that account may be used for payment and Dianne accept cards they issue.
