Having medical foods coverage would lessen the burden of worrying about the special foods our son will need as he grows up. While we can afford, with careful planning, he and others like him may struggle to have the foods they need to eat a diet based on their medical conditions. Our insurance pays for part of formula but provides no coverage for food.

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