In Massachusetts we are fortunate to have a mass mandate for formula and up to $5000 dollars coverage for medical food. From what it sounds like, we have better coverage than a lot of other states. However, to get coverage for formula and food it is an absolute nightmare collaborating with insurance companies, pharmacies and clinics. I have fear each month that there will be an issue with something and I will not be able to get food or formula for my son because of a paperwork mistake or miscommunication between providers. I guess it’s kind of a food insecurity.

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