If traditional Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) covered a post-hospital discharge home-delivered meals benefit for beneficiaries with certain chronic conditions and functional impairments, the return-on-investment (ROI) is estimated at 157%. On average, each $1.00 spent on the meals program could generate savings of $1.57. Savings are generated by an estimated 13% reduction in readmissions.

Starting in January 2020, Medicare Advantage plans will be able to offer supplemental non-medical benefits to members with chronic health conditions . . .
