Provides that an individual or group policy of accident and health insurance or managed care plan must provide coverage for intravenous feeding and for enteral or tube feeding and that the benefits shall be at least as favorable as for other coverages under the policy and may be subject to the same dollar amount limits, deductibles, and co-insurance requirements applicable generally to other coverages under the policy. Provides that an individual or group policy of accident and health insurance or managed care plan that provides coverage for prescription drugs must provide coverage for reimbursement for medically appropriate prescription nutritional supplements, limited to those products that are issued only by a physician's written order, when ordered by a physician and the insured suffers from a condition that prevents him or her from taking sufficient oral nourishment to sustain life.
