InComm Payments, a global payments technology company, has announced it has partnered with Farmbox Direct to enable InComm Healthcare’s health plan partners to offer weekly produce delivery options to their members through the FarmboxRx program. The benefit will be available through participating Medicare Advantage plans.
As an extension of the Farmbox Direct mission, FarmboxRx delivers food as medicine to America’s most at-risk population via the social determinants of health (SDOH) program. FarmboxRx enables healthy eating for at-risk populations, free of charge through insurance initiatives, by delivering fresh produce directly to members’ doors. The company offers a range of customisable fruit and vegetable boxes with curated options including boxes tailored to the management of chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, and ethnic cuisine.
“We’re excited to add another great benefit to our multi-wallet healthcare benefits solution,” said Brian Parlotto, Executive Vice President at InComm Payments. “The convenience of FarmboxRx’s home delivery service allows health plan members to take a proactive approach to their diets, which can further positively impact their long-term health – and health care spending.”
“We’re looking forward to partnering with InComm Healthcare and the OTC Network to help keep plan members eating healthy while addressing SDOH issues like food insecurity, food deserts, managing chronic health conditions, and other challenges faced by many plan members,” said Ashley Tyrner, CEO at FarmboxRx. “We offer a wide variety of boxes along with our full wellness experience, including curated recipe ideas, educational seminars, meal prepping guides, and cognitive exercises to make a healthy diet and overall wellness even more accessible, and our portfolio will expand even further this coming year.”
InComm Healthcare currently serves millions of health plan members through its OTC Network Product Suite, which features supplemental benefit and wellness incentive cards that attract, engage and retain health plan members while driving them to adopt healthier behaviours. With a range of product catalogs to choose from, plans can customise their benefits and rewards to their specific consumer base, and its multi-wallet program allows plans to deliver and manage multiple member benefits through a single card.
The OTC Network is accepted in-store at over 65,000 retail locations and online through participating retailers’ websites.
