New $50 Monthly Grocery Benefit with Devoted Health’s DSNP Plans

Devoted communication from 3.24.21:

At Devoted Health, we are working hard to continuously improve our benefits in order to help our members live better lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted seniors. In fact, 44% of our current DSNP members have expressed concerns about food insecurity. In response to this, we have added a new monthly $50 Healthy Foods card benefit for all Devoted Health’s DSNP members for the rest of the 2021 plan year to help members buy groceries as part of CMS’s flexibilities due to the pandemic. Here are some details of this new benefit:

  • All current DSNP members will be receiving their Healthy Foods card in the mail early April, new members will receive soon after their effective date
  • $50 will automatically be loaded onto the card at the beginning of each month and can be used as a credit card at a grocery store such as Publix, Sedano’s and ALDI
  • Be sure to use the credit each month – we suggest members to stock up at the start of each month and spend all $50 in a single transaction.  Members cannot roll over unused money to the next month
  • More information will be available on our website

Members can redeem all foods and produce items with the $50 Healthy Foods card, however, we encourage members to use the card for items like:

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Meat and fish
  • Eggs, cheese, milk, and other dairy products
  • Whole grains, like whole wheat bread and brown rice
  • Nuts, seeds and spreads
  • Olive oil and other plant-based oils
  • Supplemental drinks like Boost® and Ensure®


Friendly reminder that since this grocery benefit is added middle of the plan year, CMS prohibits explicitly marketing and/or advertising this benefit to prospects for the duration of 2021 plan year.
