CDPHP Medicare Advantage Members to Receive No-Cost Nutritional Support Following Hospitalization



CDPHP, a regional, not-for-profit health plan serving more than 385,000 members in 29 counties in upstate New York, is working with Mom’s Meals® to offer home-delivered, fully-prepared meals at no cost to Medicare Advantage members returning home from the hospital.

Mom’s Meals, a leading provider of home-delivered meals nationwide, offers a variety of nutritional and condition-appropriate meals delivered to the homes of CDPHP members who will require additional support after returning home from the hospital. The benefit seeks to address food insecurity concerns and reduce caregiver burden.  

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 an 80% reduction in inpatient stays 30 days post-discharge[1].

“This partnership is an important extension of an in-hospital program CDPHP launched in 2019, which works to ensure our members are prepared for a successful transition from hospital to home,” said John D. Bennett, MD, president and CEO of CDPHP. “By offering Mom’s Meals, we give our Medicare Advantage members the nutritional support they need to make a meaningful recovery.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with CDPHP,” said Mike Anderson, the president of Mom’s Meals. “At Mom’s Meals, we believe better health begins with the food we eat, and we look forward to supporting their mission to keep Medicare Advantage members healthy and preventing them from returning to the hospital.”

The nutrition benefit is now available to all CDPHP Medicare Advantage members.
