With support from the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, the Catalyst Center created a State Statutes and Regulations on Dietary Treatment of Disorders Identified through Newborn Screening chart that provides information about state-specific legislation that mandates the coverage of medically necessary foods by employer-sponsored health insurance.  

Coverage of medically necessary foods and related services by Medicaid, CHIP and other publicly-funded programs such as WIC, Title V, or relief funds are also described.
