We have experimented with lots of models of Produce Prescriptions over the past year. We currently offer a mobile market model--the Vege GuaGua. We load up our SUV, which acts like a llama, packing in all the good stuff over our mountain roads.
Who can participate?
We currently have services for people who qualify for the Healthy Opportunities Pilot. You might qualify if someone in our household participates in Medicaid managed care, is living with a chronic health condition, and needs some help with food. Call us at 828-290-9717 to learn more.
How can I enroll a patient?
If you have a patient that would benefit from the program, you can have your care management team refer them to HOP, or call us and we can help find out if they qualify.
