My loved one is immunocompromised and cannot consume raw food. Is this product safe for my loved one?
Are your meals low FODMAP?
FODMAPS are specific types of carbohydrates that might be hard for some people to digest. One serving of our meal is considered low FODMAP. However, our meal does contain some FODMAP carbohydrates (from sweet potato) and like other low FODMAP foods, more than one serving a day might pose an issue for those needing low FODMAP.
Does insurance cover WSM?
Our meals can be covered by insurance, but every insurance is different and depends on your individual plan. If your insurance covers HCPC billing code B4149 then our meals should be covered. If you have ever used Nourish or Real Food Blends they have this same billing code and insurance coverage should be no problem.
