CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carolina’s Home Medical Equipment, Inc., a leading provider of durable medical equipment, announced today the launch of CHMEI BreastPumps, a new division with the sole focus of helping breastfeeding mothers get their breast pumps while enjoying their insurance benefit.

“There are about 120,000 live births each year in North Carolina alone,” said President & CEO, Andrew Trammell.  “We’re excited to expand this line of business and improve the ease and access for new moms.”

CHMEI BreastPumps’ simple three step process alleviates the stress moms experience while navigating the insurance world, allowing them to get their breast pumps covered by insurance and shipped right to their doorstep.

Carolina’s HME is a family-owned and operated medical supply company based out of Charlotte, NC. CHMEI BreastPumps is partnered with Spectra, Medela, and others to offer their industry-leading breast pumps and breast pump accessories. The Affordable Care Act requires most health insurers to pay towards the cost of breast pumps for nursing mothers, and Carolina’s HME is an authorized DME provider that can bill your insurance for your breast pump.
