Insurance Covered Baby Formula Covers Three Kinds of Specialty Formulas

Insurance Covered Baby Formula, a company based in Bloomington, IL, is pleased to announce that there are three types of specialty formulas that can be covered through insurance. They are a company that is focused on helping parents get insurance coverage for their specialty baby formula. They are an in-network provider with most insurance companies such as BCBS, Tricare, and Anthem. The three specialty formulas that can be covered are the hypoallergenic formulas, metabolic formulas, and premature infant formulas.

Hypoallergenic formulas are for babies who have an allergy to cow’s milk. This kind of infant formula may be suitable for babies who have been having digestive problems, such as diarrhea, vomiting, or constipation. By using a hypoallergenic formula, parents can help their babies obtain the nutrients that they need without suffering from constipation, gas, or other digestive issues. Hypoallergenic formulas have been processed such that the protein required by babies have been broken down to make them more easily digestible. The only issue with hypoallergenic formulas is that they can be three times more costly compared to regular formulas. Insurance Covered Baby Formula helps parents get hypoallergenic formulas for their babies through insurance.

Hypoallergenic formulas may also be helpful for babies with colic. A baby is regarded to be colic if there are no health issues but he or she cries for a long time with no apparent reason. It is most common in babies who are six weeks and younger and it usually goes away when the baby is four months old. A baby is diagnosed as having colic if: the baby cries for at least three hours a day; the crying episodes happen at least three days a week; and the crying episodes occur for at least three succeeding weeks.

Meanwhile, metabolic formulas are for babies who have a metabolic disorder and are unable to break down food properly. Parents will know if their baby has a metabolic disorder because babies are screened for disorders at birth. Examples of metabolic formulas are Pregestemil DHA & ARA for babies with fat malabsorption and who may be sensitive to intact proteins; TYROS-1, which is phenylalanine- and tyrosine-free for babies with documented tyrosinemia; Phenyl-Free 1, which is for babies with phenylketonuria; WND 1 for babies with inborn errors of the urea cycle or who have waste nitrogen disorders; OA 1 for babies with propionic or methymalonic acidemia; LMD for babies with leucine metabolism disorders; BCAD 1 for babies with maple syrup urine disease; and more.

And for babies who were born premature, there are premature infant formulas to provide the extra calories and nutrients that they require. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that low birth weight babies and premature babies be given a specialty formula to help them catch up on their growth. Preterm babies often have problems feeding from a bottle or breast, making it all the more essential to a high-calorie premature baby formulas if the baby when not using breast milk. Premature babies may also have some health issues, which makes the premature baby formula even more vital. Premature baby formulas usually have: more protein; more calories per ounce; lutein for eye health; DHA for eye and brain development; and vitamin E to support developing cells.
