The Food is Medicine Coalition is excited to announce that the Medi-Cal Medically Tailored Meals Pilot Program can now be offered to more clients, as eligibility requirements continue to change.
Prospective clients no longer need to have been recently discharged from a health care facility to be eligible. Moving forward, meals can also be provided to anyone who has congestive heart failure, and has been admitted to a hospital, emergency department, or to a skilled nursing facility in the last 12 months for any reason. Other eligibility requirements still apply, including being on Medi-Cal for the last 12 consecutive months and having seen a primary care physician or specialist at least once in the last 12months.
If you have any questions about the program, please call 323-845-1800 ext. 207
