Feb 24, 2020 – (Des Moines, IA) — Humana Inc., a health company with a successful history in care delivery and health plan administration, has announced a relationship with Mom’s Meals® to offer home-delivered, ready-to-eat meals to members as part of their Humana Well Dine® post-discharge and chronic conditions meal benefits included on certain Medicare Advantage plans as of January 1, 2020.
Mom’s Meals, a leading provider of home-delivered meals nationwide, will offer a variety of nutritional and condition-specific meals delivered to the homes of Humana’s eligible members as part of their Medicare Advantage Individual, Group, and Medicare Supplement plans throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Humana is providing the meals to eligible members as part of their benefit plan and at no additional cost.
Studies consistently show that medically tailored meals support patient recovery after hospitalization and reduce instances of readmission, as well as help patients manage chronic conditions, avoid hospitalizations, and preserve health and independence. Programs implemented through Mom’s Meals have seen up to 80% reduction in inpatient stays 30 days after discharge, and over a 40% reduction in visits to the Emergency Department 30 days post-discharge.
“We know nutritious food has a strong impact on overall health,” said Mike Anderson, the president of Mom’s Meals. “We look forward to helping Humana’s members recover after a hospital stay, avoid readmission, and manage chronic conditions – all in the comfort of their own homes.”
