Some people have issues that prevent them from getting adequate nutrition from regular food. Whether it is digestive issues, problems with mouth or teeth, or the inability to tolerate solid food, liquid nutrition products can help these individuals to maintain a proper diet. A physician's authorization is required to be eligible for this service. Up to two cases of Ensure can be provided for free for regular diets and one case of Glucerna can be provided for free for diabetics. Clients may purchase additional cases at reduced prices up to the number of cases authorized by the physician.
