Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Purathick not recommend for children under 1?

The ingredients in Purathick, while very similar to Gelmix, have only been tested for therapeutic use with toddlers, older children and adults. Additionally, Purathick works best when shaken with liquids, and it is typically discouraged to shake breast milk vigorously. Gelmix ingredients have been well tested for safety and therapeutic use with infants, and is the best option for thickening breast milk or formula for infants under 1 year old.

Can Purathick thicken carbonated beverages?

It isn’t recomended. While Purathick will thicken the liquid, carbonated beverages will lose their carbonation when mixed with Purathick.

Is Purathick covered by insurance?

When thickening is deemed “medically necessary” some private insurance companies cover thickeners under HCPCS billing code B4100. Coverage under Medicaid/Medicare varies by state. Check with your private insurance carrier or your local state Medicaid/Medicare office for specific coverage regulations and restrictions. If covered, you’ll need to send the referral for Purathick to one of our DME suppliers.
