Medical Nutrition

I have several complex medical issues and require medical nutrition as part of my treatment. I have often found that insurance does not cover the cheaper and less invasive treatment option. My physicians wanted me on three to four nutritional drinks a day, consumed orally, but insurance would not cover this cost. Insurance would, however, cover the cost of a permanent feeding tube and supplies, as well as hospitalizations due to complications from the feeding tube.
