: Hi Gail-
: Welcome to the wonderful world of protein intolerant children. It can be frustrating at times, but it definitely is manageable.
: The people on this board have helped me too with my son's problems. I am just happy knowing that there are others going through something similar who know how I feel.
: My advice to you regarding the formula is to order it direct from the manufacturer. Pharmacies up the charges and you pay more.
: You don't happen to live in Illinois do you? I've been in contact with our senator to try to pass a bill to require insurance companies to cover it as a medical necessity as some other states have.
: If you have any questions along the way this is a great place to ask. Debbie, MaryBeth, Lori, Jamie and many others are so open with their advice, I find it very helpful. Good Luck!!
HI TRACY...THANKS FOR THE ADVICE. WE ARE LUCKY, IN THAT, OUR DOCTOR WAS ABLE TO GET OUR INSURANCE COMPANY TO COVER THE NEOCATE. I THINK IT IS CRIMINAL THAT SOME DON'T. WE ARE IN MA. I'M NOT SURE IF MAYBE THE LAWS HERE ARE DIFFERENT THAN IN IL.
