There is currently a shortage of infant formula in Arizona and throughout the U.S. This shortage is a stressful and frustrating situation for many families. Taking care of babies is hard enough without having to worry about where to find formula. The most important thing is ensuring children continue to get the nutrients they need right now. Not getting the right nutrients can affect a child’s growth and development.
AHCCCS is asking families who have experienced issues related to the formula shortage through DME/Home Health providers to complete this form to Report Concerns About the Quality of Care Received (https://www.azahcccs.gov/ACMS/). Examples might be, receiving a completely different formula than originally prescribed to receiving no formula at all.
ADHS has created a website of resources around the shortage and any updates they receive from manufacturers, FDA and partners: https://www.azdhs.gov/prevention/nutrition-physical-activity/index.php#formula-shortage-info
