God’s Love Provides Medically Tailored Meals to Eligible Medicaid Health and Recovery Plans Clients through EmblemHealth

As of October 1, EmblemHealth is covering medically tailored, home-delivered meals for Medicaid and Health and Recovery Plan (HARP) members under certain EmblemHealth value-based provider (VBP) agreements.

Our meal intervention program offers their members a three-step approach to address social determinants of health such as food insecurity and malnutrition. Patients referred to the program will receive:

  1. A nutritional assessment by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).
  2. Evidence-based, medically tailored meals that address patients’ specific medical circumstances.
  3. Ongoing nutrition education and counseling.

Dorella Walters, our Senior Director of External Program Affairs is working around the clock to expand access to medically tailored meals by developing partnerships with health care plans and providers. For more information, visit the EmblemHealth page here.
