Breast pumps and equipment are covered under the durable medical equipment (DME) benefit in CHIP. DME is not a benefit for the CHIP Perinate (unborn child). DME is covered when medically necessary for CHIP Perinate newborn members and traditional CHIP members. See Uniform Managed Care Contract, Attachment B-2.1, CHIP Covered Services; and CHIP Rural Service Area Contract, Attachment B-2, CHIP Covered Services, and Attachment B-2.1, CHIP Perinatal Covered Services.
