In observance of National Diabetes Month this November, Fidelis Care, a statewide health plan serving more than 2.3 million members, is focused on helping those with diabetes enjoy the upcoming holiday meals and traditions while managing their disease. While temptations and sweet treats may abound this time of year, some strategic meal planning and sticking to a game plan can make the holidays a less stressful time for the 1.6 million New Yorkers living with diabetes.
Fidelis Care announced today a partnership with God’s Love We Deliver, the New York City metropolitan area’s leading provider of medically tailored meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illness. Select clinical partners and primary care providers will refer eligible Fidelis Care members with chronic health conditions to receive home-delivered meals from God’s Love We Deliver free of cost, regardless of income.
