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.) 

Objectives:

Following the didactic presentations, participants will be able to:

– List three types of professionals who are able to bill for breastfeeding
