New for 2021! We’re making it easier for our members with diabetes to maintain a balanced, healthy diet. Starting January 1, UPMC for Life Complete Care (HMO SNP) members with diabetes can take advantage of a $50 allowance each quarter to buy food from participating grocery stores.
Here’s how it works:
Eligible members will be mailed a healthy food card before January 1, 2021. On January 1, a $50 allowance will be loaded to the card. This allowance will be added each quarter (every three months).
Members can use their card at participating grocery store locations, including Walmart, Giant Eagle, and more.* Choose from a variety of eligible food options and use your healthy food card at checkout.
Make sure to use your healthy food card to make healthy choices! You will not be able to use your card to buy products that do not add nutritional value to your diet.
You must use your allowance in full by Dec. 31, 2021. Any remaining amount left on the card will be lost after this date.
