Medicare Part B covers Ensure, but only if taken through a feeding tube. Medicaid coverage varies from state to state. Use through a feeding tube is typically covered; oral use is sometimes covered. As far as private insurance goes, that varies from state to state. Some states require coverage for enteral nutrition formulas for patients with Crohn's on the grounds that enteral nutrition is a therapy of proven efficacy for that condition. In most cases, it is much easier to get coverage for exclusive use (taking instead of all regular food) rather than for use as a supplement.
