Indigo, Age 5

It scares me to think about our daughter not having access to her medical formula. This isn’t an option for her, her life depends upon it and cost shouldn’t be a barrier for her or anyone living with a metabolic disorder. It’s not an alternative lifestyle, her life depends on it. Having coverage for medical food and formula would help ensure our daughter’s mind and body can grow and stay healthy. For her, the formula not an optional thing or nice to have, she is dependent on it to meet her caloric needs. Without it she would not be developing typically and because she will need it for the rest of her life, I am begging you to help ensure that she will always have access to it!

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