Help! My four months old daughter is on Neocate because of multiple food protein intolerance and milk allergy. We tried lots of other formulas which did not work. We live in MA and our insurance Guardian is based in NY. I just found out today that they denied us coverage because Neocate is an "over the counter" formula according to them. I appealed right away but they told me that since their system shows that Neocate is an over the counter, it would not do much.
We cannot afford to pay this very expensive formula but if our daughter has to go back on Alimentum, she will get very sick again. Please help!!!
A very desperate mom.
