Food Allergy Medication: Affordable Care Act Coverage for Epinephrine Injectors

Like many of my fellow food allergy bloggers, I received an email from a food allergy mom about a petition to help get life-saving epinephrine injectors included by the Affordable Care Act. Her email is below. Please read, take a look at her petition, and consider signing.

Hi Jennifer,
My 2.5 year old son is allergic to dairy. I was shocked to learn that the Affordable Care Act does not cover epinephrine injectors, life-saving medication for people with food allergies. I wrote a petition on change.org asking the US Government to mandate that all insurance plans cover epinephrine injectors. Please take a look and consider signing and sharing this petition on your blog with your followers..
