Rep. John Frey and Di Masters testify before the Human Services Committee in support of HB7165 – An Act Concerning Medicaid Coverage for Breast Milk – that would provide Medicaid reimbursement for pasteurized donor breast milk provided a licensed health care professional signs a medical order that the donor breast milk is medically necessary for an infant, the donor breast milk is provided on an inpatient basis at a hospital, and the infant who receives the donor breast milk is medically or physically unable to receive maternal breast milk or participate in breast feeding.  The donor breast milk must also be supplied by a breast milk bank accredited by the Human Milk Banking Association of North America.
