Pass the Medical Nutrition Equity Act

The Patients and Providers for Medical Nutrition Equity Coalition is a group of patient organizations and clinicians involved with disorders that require medical nutrition to maintain health. We are working to pass the Medical Nutrition Equity Act (S-1194, HB-2587), which will extend the coverage for medical nutrition that Congress passed in 2016 for TRICARE patients to other insured Americans who have inherited metabolic disorders/inborn errors of metabolism and other disorders on the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel, medical and surgical conditions of malabsorption, Immunoglobulin E and non-Im­mu­no­glob­u­lin E-mediated allergies to food proteins, inflammatory or immune mediated conditions of the alimentary tract, and other diseases or conditions determined appropriate by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Current state of Medical Nutrition Coverage

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