To use your Healthy Foods Card, simply activate it and then shop at any participating store. When you’re ready to check out, just show your card to the cashier and have it scanned. Your card will then cover the cost of any approved healthy foods in your cart up to the limit specified on your card. It’s that easy! And best of all, your card will reload automatically quarterly or every month, so you can continue to enjoy healthy eating all year long.
Qualifying items include milk, eggs, bread, juices, water, yogurts, fruits, vegetables, and more.

OTC benefits are a great way to save money on everyday health-related items. Most carriers send an OTC card in the mail post-enrollment as part of the welcome kit. The OTC card can be used in retailers such as Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS. Some carriers also send an OTC catalog and pamphlet, where you can order supplies directly by calling the carrier and requesting the items be shipped to your home. OTC benefits can be used for a wide variety of items, including pain relievers, toothpaste, cold medications, first aid supplies, and more. This benefit can help to reduce your out-of-pocket costs for these necessary items.
After enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan, you will receive an ID card in the mail from the carrier. This usually happens within two weeks. You need to bring your ID card with you to any primary care or specialist visits. It acts as proof of your coverage. If you haven’t received your ID card yet, our Customer Service team can help you check when your plan goes into effect and request a new card from the carrier. Give us a call at 877.672.1619
