Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas recognizes that nutrition is an important factor in your child’s overall health. That’s why we offer a meal benefit that includes frozen meal delivery to qualifying members after leaving the hospital.
STAR members who go home after a hospital stay will be offered the chance to order up to 14 meals from the meal services provider.
This will allow you and your family to focus on your child’s health and safety instead of worrying about grocery shopping and meal preparation. The meals will include breakfast, lunch and dinner options. The meals can be chosen from a menu. Specialized options include but are not limited to:
- Heart-friendly meals
- Diabetic-friendly meals
- Cancer-support meals based on nutritional guidelines from the American Institute for Cancer Research
- Gluten-free meals
- Vegetarian meals
- Meals with low sodium
