Healthy Food Benefit
Healthy food is important for good health.
Eating healthy can be hard on a limited budget. Knowing this, UnitedHealthcare created a new benefit called the “healthy food benefit”.

The healthy food benefit helps you stretch your monthly food budget.
On the first day of every month, you will get a set amount of credits loaded onto a prepaid debit card*. You shop for approved products at participating stores and easily swipe your debit card at checkout up to the balance on the card.
Fill your basket with healthy food items.
Healthy food credits can be used to buy a wide range of groceries. Healthy food credits are also accepted at many stores, from small corner shops and neighborhood stores to large national retailers like Walgreens and Walmart.
With your healthy food credits, you could buy a wide range of approved groceries, like:
- Fruit & vegetables
- Frozen produce & meals
- Dairy products
- Meat & seafood
- Beans & legumes
- Pantry staples – flour, sugar, spices, etc.
- Healthy grains – bread, cereals, pastas, etc.

- And more
Some items are not available for purchase, including non-food and pet items, alcohol, baby formula, candy, chips, coffee shop items, desserts, fresh baked goods, soda and tobacco.
