Total Health Driver – Preventive Services
Preventive Services refers to access to counseling, immunizations, and preventive screenings to promote healthy lifestyles and detect disease at early stages.
CareOregon’s Food Rx program allows physicians to prescribe a food voucher, or a “Food Rx,” to a patient with dietary needs that allows a patient to receive plan-sponsored meals as long as the patient needs to stabilize his or her health.
Independent Health created the Good for the Neighborhood program to offer pop-up sites for people in high-need neighborhoods to address their health needs in one convenient location.
In New Mexico’s South Valley and International District, poverty, limited access to healthy, affordable food and severe health inequities are common. Recognizing the urgent need for affordable, accessible, healthy food, Presbyterian Healthcare Services (PHS) subsidizes the La Cosecha Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, part of the Agri-Cultura Network. The partners identify low-income, food-insecure families in the South Valley and International District and connect them with weekly bags of fresh, locally grown produce during the 20-week growing season.
