Healthy Food Allowance
An allowance to help our members eat healthy
Improved for 2022! UPMC for Life Complete Care (HMO SNP) members with diabetes can take advantage of a $25 monthly allowance (up to $300 a year) to buy food from participating grocery stores.* This is a special supplemental benefit for those with diabetes (not all members will qualify).
Here’s how it works:
Eligible members will be mailed a healthy food card. If you are already a member participating in this program, you can continue to use the card we have mailed you previously. At the start of each month, a $25 allowance will be loaded on to your card. At the end of each month, any unused funds will roll over to the next month, but all funds must be used by the end of the calendar year. Any funds you have not used will not roll over to the next year.
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.
