A reader of Allergy Shmallergy just contacted me with some interesting information. She informed me that the Afforable Care Act does not cover epinephrine injectors. These life-saving devices are critical for people with life-threatening food allergies. I can’t imagine the day-to-day worry I would have if I didn’t know that I had epinephrine handy.
Our reader informed me that she has written a petition on Change.org asking the US government to mandate that all insurance plans cover epinephrine autoinjectors.
I urge everyone to take a look at the petition, consider signing and passing along this information.
Thank you for your consideration on behalf of a fellow reader and me.
