Patients want medicines that work, but don’t always realize they are compromising their safety. Medical foods are safe and effective for the dietary management of many chronic conditions.
Medical foods are safe and effective for the dietary management of many chronic diseases. They address deficiencies of naturally occurring substances that may be low due to serious drug treatments or from the effects of the disease itself. Similar to drugs, medical foods are used to manage diseases and require supervision. Unlike drugs, prescription medical foods generally do not cause severe adverse events or dangerous drug-on-drug interactions.
Many Americans depend on prescription medical foods, yet face undue burden caused by a lack of insurance coverage for these medicines, limiting patient access to safe and effective options to manage their conditions.
It’s time to create real healthcare reform and usher in a better way to improve the quality of life for Americans suffering from chronic diseases. Take action now and let Congress know it’s time to act and provide coverage for prescription medical foods.
