This question is referring to United States law.
If I get a breast pump from insurance and I don't use it, is it considered insurance fraud to sell it for cash?
It is not insurance fraud to sell medical equipment which was paid for by an insurance company. Unless it was obtained fraudulently of course.
Two warnings that probably do not apply to breast pumps:
Make sure that you actually own it. Sometimes equipment is leased; the patient does not own it.
Make sure that it is not a prescription item. You can't sell items which require a prescription.
I received mine from insurance and never used it. I had complications after my c section that prevented me from being able to breastfeed. My insurance than sent me 2 more pumps over the next 6 weeks. I told them about it and they said they couldn't take them back once they had been sent out. I didn't lie to get my 1st one, I had every intention f breastfeeding my 3rd child. The next 2 was insurance screw ups and they said they can't take them back but will stop sending them. Also those with private insurance are technically paying for them with their premium every month and some insurances might charge co pays for them.
