Ellis, Age 12

We have been fighting insurance and coverage since Ellis was diagnosed. It is very time consummating and difficult to work with insurances for her medical necessities. We have spend hundreds of hours on the phone, writing letters and working with her doctors for our insurance to provide the medical nutrition needed for Ellis to stay at her healthiest. Each year, we have to meet our $2,600 deductible for Ellis before insurance provides support.

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