National Policy Briefing Sheet 

 
 

Medically tailored meals must be incorporated as a reimbursable service for the highest-risk, highest-need individuals in our healthcare system: the sickest of the sick that cost the healthcare system the most. Medically tailored meals are not merely a good option; they are indispensable for achieving our national health goals.”
