Clayton, Age 4

Having the medical nutrition covered by our insurance would grealty imporve the options and the cost of the food that Clayton would be able to eat since he is only allowed to have 5g protein a day. With him only being allowed 5g a day he is constantly hungry. Our insurance does not pay for any medical foods or formula I less it is through a feeding tube. Children’s Hospital provides the formula for free until he’s 18-21.

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