Missional Food Pantry Approach: Wrap Around Services
FHL’s recent Table Talk featured learning how we can serve our recipients and volunteers even deeper through “No Cost” benefits (D-SNP) for the dual card holders – Medicare and Medicaid. “Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D–SNPs) enroll beneficiaries are entitled to both Medicare (Title XVIII) and Medical Assistance from a State Plan under Title XIX (Medicaid), and offer the opportunity of enhanced benefits by combining those available through Medicare and Medicaid.” (Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services)
Several pantry recipients have already signed up at different FHL MFP and are now enjoying the benefits. This is another way of providing wrap around services to your pantry recipients. And FHL Table Talks serve to help the community look into and discuss the benefits of a number of existing options for helping our clients.
