Blanchfield will begin surveying about 14,000 high-risk healthcare beneficiaries through an automated phone survey starting January 7 and into the next several weeks to assess their preference for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

At this time, no appointments are being scheduled for beneficiaries to receive the vaccine.
Beneficiaries will be alerted to when and how they can make appointments once the vaccine is available to them.

Reasons to see a consultant before you deliver: You want to learn as much as you can about breastfeeding; if you had breastfeeding or lactation difficulty in the past; expecting more than one baby or a baby who may be sick or early; you have a history of breast surgery and wonder if it will affect your breastfeeding; you think your breasts or nipples look odd to you or are very different from each other; or you worry that something about your health might make it hard to breastfeed.

Reasons to see a Lactation Consultant after you deliver: If you are concerned about your baby’s weight; you have questions and concerns about how your infant is acting during or after feeding; you feel you may have too much or too little milk; your provider or your baby’s provider sends you for help or you or your baby is hospitalized during the time you are a nursing couple.

A Lactation Consultant can help you identify the cause of a problem affecting breastfeeding for milk production; make suggestions about how to correct a problem; work with you to decide on a plan of care; suggest supplies or tools you can use to improve your breastfeeding experience (some supplies are provided during consultations if the Lactation Consultant confirms there is a need); provide you with written education and/or instructions; share information about other breastfeeding support and resources in the community; and provide follow-up consultations as needed.

Breastfeeding Classes and Peer Support at BACH

Pump Programs

How do I get a breast pump?

1. Get a prescription.

  • Your prescription must be from a TRICARE-authorized doctor, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or nurse midwife.
  • Your prescription must show if you’re getting a basic manual or standard electric pump.
  • To get a hospital-grade pump, you need to work with your provider and TRICARE contractor to get a referral and authorization. Your prescription doesn’t have to specify a brand.
  • If you’re going to get your breast pump from a network provider or durable medical equipment supplier, ask your provider to include a diagnosis code on your prescription.
  • We suggest you make a copy of your prescription for your records

2. Get a pump. 

  • If you don’t want to pay up front, contact your TRICARE contractor to find a network provider or supplier.
  • You need to show your prescription.  If you want to get your pump from a military clinic or hospital, follow their processes and procedures. 
  • If you don’t mind paying up front, go to a TRICARE-authorized provider, supplier, or vendor (includes retail and online stores).
  • Make sure to save and copy your receipt. You won’t need to show your prescription. 

3. File a claim. 

  • If you use a network provider or supplier, you don’t have to file a claim. 
  • If you bought the pump yourself, you have to fill out a DD Form 2642, attach a copy of the prescription and receipt, and mail it to your TRICARE claims processor.
  • The TRICARE contractor will mail you a check.
