Home Delivered Meals
As part of ADvantage, OKDHS offers home delivered meals as a service option. The meals are to be delivered to the Member’s home.
The Older Americans Act (OAA) in Oklahoma has polices in place that do not allow Members that have other means of meal services, such as ADvantage home delivered meals, to receive meals for free. Sometimes these meals are also called Title III meals. If an ADvantage Member receives a Title III meal they will have to pay the full price cost for this meal. Please make sure that all providers are aware of these polices regarding the difference between ADvantage home delivered meals and Older Americans Act meals. Thank you for being an important partner in serving our ADvantage Program Members.
If you have any questions regarding the information provided above, please contact us at Provider Questions via your Smarter Mail account.
