Nebraska’s Metabolic Foods Program is authorized under
Neb.Rev.Stat. §71-520. Nebraska residents who have been diagnosed with a
metabolic disease listed at 181 NAC 2-003 and require pharmaceutically
manufactured metabolic foods for dietary treatment or to prevent significant
illness or disability related to the metabolic disease can be reimbursed for
the purchase of these foods, up to $2000 per year.
If you have already been determined eligible for this program but feel that you cannot afford to purchase this food and then wait for reimbursement please call (402) 471-9731 to discuss possible options.
Metabolic food has been chemically synthesized from natural
food, provides less than two grams of protein per serving, and is formulated to
be consumed or administered under the direction of a licensed physician,
physician assistant, or advanced practice registered nurse-nurse practitioner. If you have
been diagnosed with a metabolic disease work with your physician or metabolic
dietician to have the proper documentation submitted to the Metabolic Food
Program showing your diagnosis and requirements for metabolic food.
