Please help us continue to build momentum for the Medical Nutrition Equity Act by contacting your Representative and asking them to co-sponsor H.R. 2501. The reintroduction of the Medical Nutrition Equity Act (H.R. 2501) in the House of Representatives last week has positioned us at an ideal vantage point! We must use this momentum to galvanize Members of the House of Representatives to sign on as co-sponsors.
To make contacting your Representative easy we have provided a pre-composed letter that is ready to send! The only thing you need to do is add your name, and you’re DONE!
Feel free to customize the letter by adding your own personal story after "This issue is important to me."
Together we can make a difference for PKU!
The Medical Nutrition Equity Act would help thousands of people with PKU and other metabolic disorders afford their lifesaving treatments - medical foods. H.R. 2501 would provide public and private insurance coverage for physician-prescribed medical formulas and low protein modified foods for children and adults with PKU and other inborn errors of metabolism. Requiring insurance coverage of medical nutrition will mean that families like your own won't have to choose between paying for medical foods or other necessities.
We anticipate the reintroduction of the Medical Nutrition Equity Act in the Senate to follow soon. Thank you for your advocacy efforts!
Please consider supporting the NPKUA in our efforts to move the Medical Nutrition Equity Act across the finish line.
