Top Tips For Getting Insurance Coverage for Your Formula, Quick!

  1. Make sure your doctor agrees to write a prescription for you for Liquid Hope or Nourish. The prescription must be on the doctor's prescription pad with the amount of volume/calories indicated and the number of refills you will need.

  2. Be certain that the Letter of Medical Necessity from your doctor states that there is a need to change to Liquid Hope or Nourish from your current formula. It is imperative that this letter is written on the doctor's letterhead; if it's not, the process will be delayed.

  3. Include Progress Notes that specify the Nutrition Assessment or Treatment Plan, and make sure that those notes mention Liquid Hope or Nourish.

  4. Contact your current durable medical equipment (DME) supplier and ask if they will supply Liquid Hope or Nourish. Mention that you are switching from your current formula to Liquid Hope or Nourish. If your current supplier does not carry the formula, you may need to switch to another DME supplier. Find a list of DME suppliers on our website here, or check out the DMEs that ship nationwide here.

  5. Make sure all forms and documents noted on the Insurance page are completed before sending the information over to our coverage team. Your application will not be completed unless all forms and documents are received. The email address to send the forms is insurance@functionalformularies.com. Alternatively, you can fax the forms to (937)221-9243.
