State Statues and Regulations on Dietary Treatment of Disorders Identified Through Newborn Screening
Individuals with genetic disorders, identified through NBS, may require Modified Low Protein Foods (MLPFs), medical foods, dietary supplements, and other dietary treatments as well as enteral feeding supplies.

includes various definitions of medical foods, an overview of state coverage, and in-depth examination of each state's (including DC, and Puerto Rico) legislation.
