This spring, the Medical Nutrition Equity Act was reintroduced into Congress. This legislation would require medical foods, such as elemental formula prescribed to treat eosinophilic disorders, to be covered under Medicaid, Medicare, the Federal Employee Health Benefit Program, and private insurance.
Currently, the bill currently has 13 Congressional co-sponsors from California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Washington.
We are asking our patient community to please contact their Representatives and encourage their co-sponsorship of this important legislation, too.
