Julian, Age 13

Coverage would mean that i could really offer my son enough nutrition per day instead of rationing. He does eat about 6 foods, but their nutrition value is small. He does about 3-4 hours of physical activity per day (dance) and without the formula I don’t think he has the stamina to perform to his potential without getting tired. My employer, though great for everything else, is self-Insured. Due to this fact they are not required to cover my 13 year old’s formula.

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