Positive Paradigm for the Reimbursement of Medical Foods

The market for medical foods is expanding to geographical regions where methods for nutritional care are not present. Most of the market is consolidated with a few players. A majority of the medical foods market is concentrated in geographical locations such as the U.S. and Europe. Prescription drugs are subsidized by healthcare plans from insurance companies based on each region’s reimbursement plan. Therefore, the inclination to adopt such insurance-mandated medical food reimbursement policies creates a positive environment for the company involved in the market. These kinds of initiatives affect the overall market, where market participants benefit from plans that help the overall medical foods market. Policy differences allow manufacturers to lower the prices of their medical food products, which would enhance the affordability for consumers and assist market infiltration. Though, the case is not so easy for insurance companies who are consistently opposing such regulations for medical foods, as this would practically decrease their profits. The absence of regulations and proper standards for medical foods makes the situation trickier. Perhaps it would easily allow other items that may not be authentic medical foods to be added in the list of medical foods.

Product Development for New Indications

Medical foods were initially developed to address certain indications such as malnutrition among children and inborn error metabolism. Within the medical foods industry, companies who lead the market such as Nestlé, Abbott, and Fresenius Kabi have established themselves as strong resources for medical food products for diseases, including maple syrup urine disease (MSUD) and phenylketonuria (PKU). Companies with broad product portfolios for different indications allow them to have a strong grip in the medical foods market, and have a continuous revenue flow through concerned business segments. If those methods of product development change with unmet indication categories, it is likely that the demand for better services and product candidates would significantly rise. The market for medical foods is in the growing phase, where manufacturers are coming up with products used for new disease indications. Thus, product development among most of the companies involved in the market for medical foods helps in leading their way through this market.

Close to 70% Revenue Contribution by Leading Manufacturers in the Medical Foods Market

The medical foods market is not a regular market as far as marketing regulations are concerned. It has a series of labeling requirements, consolidated and dominated by global manufactures, and provides accessibility to reasonable products which decreases profitability for manufacturers. Companies such as Nestlé S.A., Abbott, and Danone S.A. account for a majority of revenue in the medical foods market. Smaller companies in the medical foods market such as Targeted Medical Pharma Inc., Primus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Fresenius Kabi AG show big potential, which would help in product variations and break the consolidated nature of the medical foods market.
