Having coverage for medical nutrition through TRICARE has meant everything to me and my family.  2 of my brothers and I were diagnosed with PKU when we were born. We were lucky enough to have been treated with medical formula right away and all our life. Without it, we would not have succeeded as well in school or in other areas of life. It is a necessity for anyone diagnosed with this disorder to receive medical formula because they aren’t able to function properly without it. It has been one of the biggest blessings especially to my mom and dad, as she has always wanted us to be healthy and able to function well. This picture is of me, my younger brother, and parents. Me and my brother have PKU.

The Medical Nutrition Equity Act will provide key support for those Americans who rely on medical foods to survive and thrive.
