Often, getting the diagnosis of CSID is a long, complicated process. This may lead to large medical bills, which can add stress to the family dynamics. Engaging the services of a financial counselor may be wise.
Buying specialty food items for a patient with CSID can be expensive. In the United States, it is possible to gain tax deductions for food items required for special diets. This can only be done if a person is itemizing their tax return documents. Certain guidelines apply. Consult a qualified tax professional for guidance on your unique situation.
Be sure to discuss any financial concerns related to your treatment with your physician. There are financial support programs in place to minimize the cost to CSID patients.
