Utilizing this solution, Medicare Advantage health plans will be able to provide their members with an OTC Network benefits card loaded monthly with funds that can be used to purchase SunMeadow® meals. Medicare Advantage members who have been helped through plan-sponsored post-discharge meals or chronic care meals supplemental benefit for a limited duration can now access nutritious and medically tailored meals on an ongoing basis through their OTC card. In addition, Medicare Advantage members who don't qualify for a post-discharge or chronic care meals benefit can now access delicious home-delivered meals.  

Members may order meals and schedule delivery online or by phone and set up automatic reshipment of meals directly with GA Foods. All SunMeadow® meals are designed by a team of dietitians to meet or exceed the unique nutritional needs of older adults and are heart-healthy and diabetic-friendly. An executive chef adds flavor and flair to traditional favorites that appeal to older adults.

These delicious meals are packaged as a Total Meal System™ which includes a loaf of bread and fruit, juice or dessert to support a healthy lifestyle. GA Foods provides nutritionally balanced meals that are appropriate even for those on special diets. Medically tailored meals are available for individuals with diabetes, congestive heart failure/hypertension/chronic renal failure, HIV/wound healing/cancer/surgical recovery, obesity, and dysphagia.  Members may also select Kosher, Latin flavors, vegetarian, and breakfast menus.

Powered by InComm Healthcare's Payments Platform, the OTC Network allows consumers to use health plan-sponsored benefit and incentive dollars to purchase products and services from participating retailers and partners. The most recent addition to this program will enable consumers to apply their funds towards home-delivered meals.

“This initiative will give plan members access to quality nutrition, including meals tailored to specific dietary needs, delivered to their door,” said Brian Parlotto, Executive Vice President at InComm Payments. “The positive impacts of this program are evident for plans and members alike.” 

“GA Foods is pleased to partner with InComm Payments to provide nutrition care to the most vulnerable population and support its partners with innovation and unparalleled service,” says Glenn Davenport, president, GA Foods.  “Home-delivered meals can significantly improve diet quality, nutrient intake, and reduce food insecurity and nutritional risk.”

With InComm Healthcare's new multi-wallet card capabilities, health plans can also offer multiple types of purchases on a single card. Purchases may include:

•    Over-the-counter (OTC) products in 60,000 retailers
•    Mail order and online OTC products
•    Healthy foods including home-delivered meals
