Program Description:

We are proud to present a one-hour webinar followed by Q&A focused on building understanding about how to develop a pathway for reimbursement for lactation services in your agency. 


Guidance will be provided to help you to determine the important factors you will need to explore as you create a plan for your agency to generate revenue for lactation services.


By identifying professionals who are able to bill for breastfeeding care and considering your agency’s FQHC or CPSP status*, attendees will be able to form a plan for seeking reimbursement.


*It will be helpful for you to find out prior to the webinar whether your agency has FQHC or CPSP status (or both.) 


Following the didactic presentations, participants will be able to:

– List three types of professionals who are able to bill for breastfeeding
– Review the differences in billing for an FQHC or CPSP provider
– Identify the next steps for your agency to generate revenue for breastfeeding


This webinar is approved for 1 E-CERP and 1 CEU.
