Ludivine, she means she's fully popped, like her belly has fully popped out and she's definitely showing! It's awesome huh?!
Anyways, I looked mine up on my insurance's website. I'm on my husband's insurance through his work. It's called Healthsmart (in case anyone else happens to have it) and they put this up on their website in February.
Breast Pumps and Lactation Supplies Now Qualify as Deductible Medical Expenses
On February 10, the IRS announced that breast pumps and supplies that assist lactation are medical care under §213(d) of the Internal Revenue Code because, like obstetric care, they are for purposes of affecting a structure or function of the body of lactating women. Therefore, if the remaining requirements of §213(a) are met, expenses paid for breast pumps and supplies that assist lactation are deductible medical expenses. Amounts reimbursed for these expenses under FSAs, Archer MSAs, HRAs, or HSAs will not be income to the taxpayer. Thus, the amounts are reimbursable, regardless of the existence of a medical condition.
I don't know what the remaining requirements are though. I'll probably have to go into my husband's job and ask the lady that handles all the insurance stuff about it, because I'm sure he wouldn't wanna do that for me, lol. Also because he'd probably forget anyway!
