Healthcare Cost Savings

A balanced diet and proper nutrition impact financial stability by reducing healthcare costs. Access to healthy meals ensures individuals with special dietary needs recover more effectively from medical procedures or conditions, decreasing the cost of support services and medicine. According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), “[S]pending to treat cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes accounted for 26 percent of the approximately $1.5 trillion in total health care spending for U.S. adults in 2018.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition reduces healthcare costs by preventing chronic diseases, decreasing hospital readmission rates, and improving overall health. 

What Are the Benefits of Healthcare Cost Savings?

Healthcare costs place a significant financial burden on individuals and communities. According to the California Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI), “83% of Californians surveyed identified health care affordability as an extremely or very important issue to them.” Many older adults and individuals with disabilities have to make difficult choices about whether to pay for essential household needs or medical services.

The strain of healthcare costs impacts the following: 

  • Quality of life
  • Housing stability 
  • Retirement opportunities
  • Education
  • Family dynamics and relationships  
  • Mental health 

Billions of dollars each year are spent on preventable health issues. The cost puts a severe strain on communities and families in California. Healthy meal deliveries reduce healthcare costs by preventing some common medical problems. Money saved on healthcare services, treatments, procedures, and equipment can cover the cost of essentials like education and safe housing. 

What Services Protect People From Unnecessary Healthcare Costs?

Home meal deliveries reduce unnecessary healthcare costs by promoting healthier habits. Some other services people use to avoid health-related costs include: 

  • Nutrition coaching 
  • Tailored meal planning 
  • Nutrition education 

People often find it easier to make healthy dietary choices if they understand how diet affects their overall health. LifeSpring Home Nutrition educates individuals and communities on the importance of nutrition and a healthy relationship with food. A registered dietician (RD) assesses each client and provides them with suggestions for improving their overall diet and health. RDs often work alongside other sectors, including healthcare providers, insurance companies, and state or federal programs. 

Below are seven services available in California to protect individuals who are elderly, disabled, or disadvantaged. 

#1. Healthy Food Subsidies

Subsidies allow low-income individuals to access healthy foods at an affordable price through vouchers or coupons. According to Public Health Nutrition, “Subsidizing healthier foods tends to be effective in modifying dietary behaviour” and reducing healthcare costs. 

#2. Nutrition Care Programs

Programs focused on providing nutrition care reduce overall healthcare strain and costs. According to the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, “[T]he potential cost savings from a nutrition care program for patients at malnutrition risk would be US $862.6 million per year.” Nutrition programs improve people’s quality of life and reduce health issues caused by malnutrition. 

#3. Food Assistance Programs

Policies aimed at reducing food insecurity and inequality improve health outcomes for families and individuals living in California. According to Health.gov, “Food assistance programs, such as the National School Lunch Program (NSLP); the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program; and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), address barriers to accessing healthy food” and reduce healthcare costs. 

#4. Food Security Programs

According to the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, “Community Food Security addresses hunger and food security at a community level . . . including local infrastructure, economic and job security, federal food assistance, food recovery and donations, education and awareness, and community food production and marketing.” Programs supporting these measures have the potential to significantly reduce preventable health issues, including heart disease. 

#5. Hospital-Based Nutrition Care Programs

Participating in hospital-based nutrition care programs has the potential to improve quality of life and reduce health concerns related to malnutrition and other diet-related issues impacting hospitalized individuals. People save money on additional healthcare costs by improving their overall health through proper diet and positive lifestyle changes.

#6. Medicare and Medicaid Coverage for Healthy Food

People benefit from accepting services offered by Medicare and Medicaid. According to Plos Medicine, “Economic incentives for healthier foods through Medicare and Medicaid could generate substantial health gains and be highly cost-effective.”

#7. At-Home Nutrition-Focused Care

Individuals who receive at-home nutrition-focused care have fewer medical complications, better overall health, and fewer healthcare-related costs. At-home meal delivery services are an example of at-home nutrition-focused care people can use to save money and improve their quality of life.

How Does LifeSpring Home Nutrition Help People Reduce Healthcare Costs?

LifeSpring Home Nutrition helps people reduce healthcare costs by providing access to medically tailored meals (MTMs) and other essential services. The company can offer these services by contracting with many insurance and healthcare providers in California. According to Cathleen Anthony, M.B.A., owner of LifeSpring Home Nutrition, “As a Company, we believe in offering the dignity of choice. We currently have contracts with Scan Health Plan, Independence at Home, Blue Shield of Ca, CalOptima MSSP, PACE & CalAIM, Partners in Care Foundation, County of Riverside, County of Orange, Huntington Hospital, HSA and are starting CalAIM services with Kaiser in 2024.”

Healthcare Cost Saving With Medically Tailored Meals

MTMs allow people to heal and manage medical conditions more effectively. They reduce the risk of medical complications or preventable diseases. LifeSpring Home Nutrition provides MTMs for a wide range of dietary needs. An RD consults with each person one-on-one to ensure they receive the best meals to meet their needs and preferences.

Treatment and Malnutrition

Malnutrition is one of the most common causes of preventable diseases. According to BMJ Open, “A systematic review of studies using oral nutritional supplements to treat malnutrition revealed cost savings, which were attributed to fewer medical complications, shortened hospital stays, prevention of pressure ulcers, and improved quality-adjusted life years.” MTMs treat malnutrition and other health issues.

Disease Prevention

Investing in disease prevention saves lives and protects people from unnecessary healthcare costs by reducing preventable diseases. Billions of dollars can be saved each year through disease prevention measures. LifeSpring Home Nutrition educates individuals and communities about how to prevent disease.

Healthcare services in the United States cost communities trillions of dollars each year. LifeSpring Home Nutrition reduces healthcare costs by ensuring people have access to nutritional meals, lowering the risk of preventable diseases, malnutrition, and other health issues.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
