As for having to pay for supplements in the US, it really depends on what state you’re in. I live in Illinois, where the Department of Health provides free formula to anyone in the state who needs it (you need a doctor’s prescription to show need). However, in Missouri, I know that there is no coverage for formula, and you have to pay for it entirely out-of-pocket. Check into the laws in your state.
