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.

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.
