“Tell Congress: cover ALL #medicalfoods in Medical Nutrition Equity Act to help all #chronic conditions that req medically necessary food!”


“Congress: Don’t neglect those in need! Cover ALL #medicalfoods for ALL w/ #chronic conditions. Amend the Medical Nutrition Equity Act now!”


“It’s unfair to cover med necessary foods for some conditions & neglect the rest! Tell Congress: make insurance pay for ALL #medicalfoods!”


“No #chronic condition left behind! If Congress covers #medicalfoods for one, they must require coverage for all. #medicalnutritionequityact”


“Congress introduced the Medical Nutrition Equity Act, which only includes health plan coverage of #medicalfoods for some chronic conditions. This isn’t fair for the millions of Americans with other debilitating diseases that need safer, more effective options! Limiting access by not requiring Federal and commercial health plans to cover ALL life-saving medically necessary foods causes healthcare costs to skyrocket when people suffer dangerous side effects from having to take synthetic drugs, like #opioids that their health plans will cover.”

“Millions of Americans rely on prescription #medicalfoods for many #chronic conditions, including: #osteoarthritis, #RA, #ADHD, chronic venous disease, #osteopenia, #osteoporosis, and cognitive impairment. Don’t let Congress neglect these millions of Americans by cherry-picking which patients get access. Speak up! Tell Congress to expand the language in the Medical Nutrition Equity Act before it’s too late.”
