Lobby for Formula Coverage
The Children’s Milk Allergy and Gastrointestinal Coalition (MAGIC) was formed to promote reimbursement for amino acid–based elemental formulas (such as Neocate® and EleCare™) for children who are unable to consume normal foods due to allergies, disease, or other conditions. The coalition is lobbying states to mandate coverage for elemental formulas regardless of delivery method, and for use in testing when required by a medical professional. This includes requiring private insurance companies to provide reimbursement for formulas when they are needed for proper nutrition and recommended by a doctor.The coalition’s mission is to support current reimbursement lobbying efforts where they exist and to create opportunities for coverage in new states.
