The Medical Nutrition Equity Act is expected to be re-introduced in the 118th Congress in early 2023. Until then, there are TWO critical ways that you can help get insurance coverage for medically necessary nutrition!
The 118th Congress has begun, which means that the Medical Nutrition Equity Act will need to be reintroduced and we will need to rebuild support among the current members of Congress. Please help us by submitting a story explaining why it is insurance coverage for medically necessary nutrition is important to you and to your family. These stories are ESSENTIAL in our efforts to build support for this legislation.
Rare Disease Advocates interested in advocating for the MNEA at Rare Disease Week (RDW) are invited to sign up for an informal get-together to meet each other and collect resources. This isn’t an official coaltion event, but it will give medical nutrition advocates a chance to connect and ask questions as we head into legislative meetings during Rare Disease Week, sponsored by the Everylife Foundation. Registration for RDW closes 2/17. Let us know if you’ll be in DC and we’ll contact you with more details.
