Medicaid!!! If not try the WIC store. They usually carry it the cheapest. It costs $35 at a WIC store on Sam Houston st in Pharr, Texas

Our insurance paid for this. We have Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts. Our GI doc had to write up a special request to get it authorized, though. Have you tried this? If it's a medically necessary prescription, I don't see why the insurance wouldn't cover it if you have prescription benefits.

Not us...
We had both Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC as well as United Healthcare during our daughter's reflux. Neither would cover Neocate for us...even with the GI specialist's advanced request. We have terrific Rx benefits as my husband works at a large drug company...but no luck on the Neocate - said it was a food product, not a prescription drug product. Between Neocate and Alimentum, we figure that we spent about $3K on formula the first year. I really hope things have changed and you can get help. It's a medical necessity for our kids!
Check with your
doctor first!
