Are breast pumps covered by an FSA?

Though people debated their use, the IRS ruled in 2011 that breast pumps and accessories would become an FSA eligible product. The reasoning behind it is because breast pumps are applied for medical care (assisting lactation).

Early hand-operated breast pumps have paved the way for electric pumps reflecting the needs of modern, on-the-go moms. Curious about which breast pump accessories are covered by an FSA?

FSA eligible breastfeeding accessories include:

- The breast pump itself (cost or rental fee).

- Breast pump parts.

- Accessories such as storage bottles, storage bags, gel pads, nursing pads, nipple shields, conversion kits, areola stimulator, car adapter.
