Congregate and Home Delivered Meals
Congregate and Home Delivered Meals is an individually designed service which provides meals to waiver participants who cannot prepare or obtain nutritionally adequate meals for themselves, or when the provision of such meals will decrease the need for more costly supports to provide in-home meal preparation. These meals will assist the waiver participant to maintain a nutritious diet. These meals do not constitute a full nutritional regimen. Therefore the maximum number of meals the participant may receive per day is two (2). It is not to be used to replace the regular form of "board" associated with routine living in an Adult Care Facility. Individuals eligible for non-waiver nutritional services would access those services first.
Providers of Congregate and Home Delivered Meals are either contracted through Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) or those entities contracted through the Area Agency on Aging for Congregate and Home Delivered Meals.
Congregate and Home Delivered Meals must be documented in the SP and provided by agencies approved by DOH.
This service is reimbursed on a per meal basis.
Attendance at Team Meetings for Congregate and Home Delivered Meal providers will be determined by the SC.
