SPUR Supports AB 368, Which Would Establish Three Food Prescription Pilots

Policy Letter

SPUR supports Assembly Bill 368, which would establish food prescription pilots in partnership with Medi-Cal managed care plans in three California counties. The pilots will provide medically-supportive food to approximately 2,400 Medi-Cal beneficiaries who have one or more chronic health condition(s). The legislation aims to directly address racial health disparities, chronic disease, healthcare costs, and healthcare utilization among Medi-Cal beneficiaries.
