Summary as introduced:
Accident and sickness insurance; coverage for polypeptide-based or amino acid-based formulas. Requires health insurers, health care subscription plans and health maintenance organizations to provide coverage for the expense of polypeptide-based or amino acid-based formulas whose protein source has been extensively or completely hydrolyzed. This benefit is to be available if the formula is required to treat either a diagnosed inborn error of amino acid or organic acid metabolism or a diagnosed disease or disorder of the gastrointestinal tract that leads to malnutrition or malabsorption due to inflammation, protein sensitivity, or inborn errors of digestion, and is the primary source of nutrition as certified by the treating physician by diagnosis.
