This program provides fully prepared, nutritious meals to eligible Humana Medicare-covered patients recovering from an inpatient stay in a hospital or skilled nursing facility, as well as those enrolled in a qualified chronic-condition special needs plan. Eligible patients receive home delivery of the meals, which can be stored in the refrigerator and heated when ready to eat. Patients also receive a guide to nutrition and eating well.

Program overview

Eligible patients who have been discharged from a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF) receive 10 meals and can choose from regular, vegetarian, gluten-free and lower-sodium options, as well as meals customized for various medical conditions. Patients can receive meals in conjunction with up to four hospital/SNF admissions per year.

Humana-covered patients who are eligible for the chronic condition meals program receive 20 meals that support the special dietary needs of that chronic condition. Patients with multiple conditions can receive 20 meals per condition and up to 60 meals during the plan year. Eligible conditions are congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, diabetes and end-stage renal disease.
