The Medical Nutrition Therapy for Prevention (MNT4P) Program bridges the coverage gap for patients with inherited metabolic disorders in the state of Georgia. MNT4P provides medical foods, low-protein modified foods, treatment-related supplies and support, and insurance navigation to prevent poor health outcomes and improve health-related quality of life. All applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis to support MNT4P’s mission of ensuring access to medical foods for all individuals in need, regardless of income status.
 
Eligibility Criteria:
  • Patient has visited the metabolic clinic in the last 6-12 months.
  • Patient has difficulty accessing medical foods (formula or low-protein modified food).
  • Patient has a diagnosed inherited metabolic disorder.
If the patient is eligible for assistance, a one month supply of the medical food (not money) will be shipped immediately, as needed, to the patient’s home address. Continued assistance may be provided in the form of approved product/service and/or insurance navigation. Additionally, the MNT4P team will actively support the patient/parents/guardian while they work with their health insurance carrier to overcome barriers to medical food access. Once this application has been submitted, a member of the MNT4P team will contact you.
