InComm Healthcare Joins Hands with Mom's Meals
Through Mom's Meals, customers can order and schedule the delivery of meals online or by phone as per their convenience. These chef-designed refrigerated meals can be heated and ready to eat in two minutes.
FREMONT, CA: InComm Payments, a leading global payments technology company, declared a new partnership with Mom's Meals, a PurFoods company, to provide Medicare Advantage health plans with the option to allow their members to self-pay for fully prepared, home-delivered meals with their over-the-counter (OTC) benefit card.
Using this solution, Medicare Advantage health plans would be capable of providing their members with an OTC Network benefits card loaded with a monthly allotment that can be utilized to purchase Mom's Meals. Medicare Advantage members who have been helped through post-discharge plan-sponsored meals or chronic care meals supplemental benefit for a limited duration can now access healthy and medically personalized meals on a regular basis through their OTC card. In addition, Medicare Advantage members who do not qualify for chronic care or post-discharge meals benefit can now access delicious home-delivered meals.
Through Mom's Meals, customers can order and schedule the delivery of meals online or by phone as per their convenience. These chef-designed refrigerated meals can be heated and ready to eat in two minutes. The meals contain nutritious options for everyone, including the specific dietary needs of those with chronic health conditions such as renal conditions, heart disease, diabetes, gluten intolerance, and more.
Powered by InComm Healthcare's Payments Platform, the OTC Network enables consumers to utilize health plan-sponsored benefit and incentive dollars to purchase products and services from participating partners and retailers. The most recent addition to this program enables consumers to apply their funds towards home-delivered meals.
"With so many people staying at home in these trying times, this is a great way to deliver nutritious meals while allowing customers to forego grocery shopping and cooking," stated Brian Parlotto, Executive Vice President at InComm Payments. "This partnership provides convenient access to healthy meals that can improve long-term health outcomes."
"We know nutritious food has a large impact on overall health," stated Mike Anderson, President of Mom's Meals. "Being part of the InComm Healthcare solution means more Medicare Advantage beneficiaries can access healthy home-delivered meals for a longer period of time. We look forward to helping more people meet their food and nutrition needs – all in the comfort and safety of their own homes, which is so important right now."
