Health Plan Meal Benefit Programs

LiveWell with Traditions offers nutrition programs as a meal benefit for health plan customers that earn high marks for consumer satisfaction.

Offering nutrition benefits to health plan customers is increasing among health plans year over year. For example, among insurance plans that provide Medicare benefits through a private-sector insurer:


Approximately 70 plans offered meal benefits


Approximately 350 plans offered meal benefits (a 445% increase)
68% of Medicare Advantage health plans offer a meal delivery benefit (the most common non-medical supplemental benefit), up from 55% in 2021
The percentage of all plans that offer meals as a supplemental benefit at $0 premium increased from 30% in 2021 to 40% in 2022


It is projected that 425 plans will offer a meal benefit
LiveWell with Traditions is meeting this growing demand with nutritionally-balanced meals that comply with health insurance meal benefits. Offering these nutritious meals helps reduce hospital visits and readmissions and promotes healing.

Direct-to-Door Delivery

While our meals improve customer nutrition and contribute to positive health outcomes, our high level of service optimizes the CAHPS and STAR experience for health insurance plans.

That’s because LiveWell with Traditions provides direct-to-door delivery of meals, with our own trucks and drivers.* These meals are brought directly to your customers with certain chronic health conditions year ‘round as well as during post-acute discharge. Our drivers take extra care to ensure your customers receive their meals directly into their hands, avoiding any instances of leaving them unattended at the doorstep.
*A common carrier may be needed for direct-to-door deliveries in some areas.
