Current Initiatives

The Eating Disorders Coalition advances the recognition of eating disorders as a public health priority throughout the United States. There are two main avenues for addressing eating disorders policies at the federal level. The first is to incorporate eating disorders into already existing and moving initiatives. The second avenue is to help define the Congressional agenda by advocating for the drafting and introduction of new bills that improve the lives of people who are affected by eating disorders.


The Nutrition CARE Act

The Nutrition CARE Act modifies the Medicare benefit design to include outpatient Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) as a covered benefit under Medicare Part B.
