Medically Tailored Meals
As of November 1, 2020, Amida Care covers medically tailored home-delivered meals for members (depending upon eligibility). Amida Care is partnering with God’s Love We Deliver, the premier home-delivered meal service in the New York area, for a home-delivered meal service designed specifically for Amida Care members. God’s Love cooks and delivers high-quality meals and provides nutrition counseling to Amida Care members who, because of chronic illness, are unable to shop and cook for themselves. The meals are then delivered to your home.
Designed to improve your health and well-being and customized to meet your medical needs, the meals are approved by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) after a nutritional assessment and a referral from your provider.
