    Have you apply for state assistance? Medicaid and WIC(Woman,Infant and Child.) Most states mandate that medical insurance pay for the formula and the low protein food in some states. In my case my family income was too much for state assistance, I called a state senetor and explain my situation and PKU to him. After doing some research on his own. He was willing to help out to get us assistance, in which we have now.
    Good Luck

    Also you can get into a PKU study. nEverything is paid for. nFrom Drs. visits,blood work,and food/formula.
    Contact your dietition or Genticits.
