Tip for Parents
If you have no insurance for your school age child, you may be able to get your school to pay for any EN formula and/or TPN your child infuses during school hours through the school lunch program. I stumbled onto this fact when we had a two week lapse in insurance coverage for my daughter Stacy. We applied for the school lunch program, paid our portion of the “lunch” bill ($1.40/day), and were able to get the school to pay the rest of bill for the nutrition she infused at school. Needless to say, it was well worth the effort.
