What It Means for Ohio Medicare & Medicaid Consumers in 2014
January 2014 is the implementation date for the
Affordable Care Act. Exactly, what does that mean? Do
you know how the Affordable Care Act (also known as
Obama Care or Health Care Reform) will affect YOU?
If you are receiving health insurance coverage through
Medicare or Medicaid - or if you are anticipating getting

If you live beyond the city limits of Sandusky or beyond
a proximal point in Perkins Township, then you live in the
“Rural Hot Home Delivered Meals” delivery area. The
Rural Hot Home Delivered Meal Program asks its
consumers for an anonymous donation. $3.00/meal is
suggested, any amount is appreciated. Even if you can’t
give, you will still receive the meal – if you qualify.
Household income has nothing to do with whether or
not you qualify to receive Rural Hot Home Delivered
It has everything to do with being at nutritional risk.
Meals are not delivered for the sake of convenience. This
program is designed to assist people age 60+, to
maintain their independence. Meals are delivered
because of diffculty shopping/getting groceries; and/or
the functional capacity to prepare it. Some examples of
nutritional risk include, but are not limited to: Having
diffculties getting out to shop for food;
recuperating from a hospital discharge;
lacking the health/strength/stamina to
prepare a meal; having problems with
memory; and lack of appetite.
If you live in the rural delivery area,
Senior Advocate, Anthony Pool will come
to your home to meet you and determine if you qualify. If
it appears that you might have the functional capacity to
prepare your meals, he will arrange for an occupational
therapist to do a functional capacity assessment for meal
preparation. The occupational therapist has expertise to
identify ways to boost your own ability to prepare your
own meals that is within your functional limitations. If this
does not work, then the person qualifes for the Rural Hot
Home Delivered Meal Program.
