Elijah, Age 7

The Medical Nutrition Equity Act would mean my 7 year old son could get proper nutrition he needs. He is currently 45lbs at 7.5 years old. He is so limited on what he can eat safely, he often goes to the Kate Farms as a safe option. Unfortunately paying for the shakes on top of the expensive grocery list to fit his nutritional needs puts a strain on our family financially. BCBS says they do not cover “formula” like this, unless tube fed.

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