I offer office consultations in San Francisco, Castro neighborhood: 4200 18th Street, Unit 203, 2nd floor (elevator available). Access: metered parking and 2 hours street parking usually available within 1-3 blocks (possibly more difficult in the evening), MUNI accessible.
Insurance and coverage:
I am in-network with Aetna and no payment is needed if you are entitled to lactation visits under your Aetna plan. You’ll be asked to provide a copy of your Aetna card before the appointment and to sign a consent form.
For any other insurance, payment in full will be required at the time of your visit (check, cash, Venmo, Square Cash, Google Wallet, Paypal accepted).
While lactation consultations are supposed to be covered in full by insurance companies, there is no guarantee of reimbursement and you’ll need to discuss it directly with your insurance. I provide a superbill with all the information required to submit to your insurance company. Some companies arrange full coverage for their employees (Google, Uber, etc.).
Home visits are available on an occasional basis. Please inquire directly if you want a home visit by filling out this online form. Additional fees apply.
Cancellation policy: confirmed appointments cancelled less than 24 hours before scheduled time will be subject to a fee of half the original cost and $100 non billable fee to Aetna families.
