Insurance covers medical nutrition therapy

When provided by a Registered Dietitian (RD), most insurance plans cover medical nutrition therapy, nutrition education, and nutrition counseling. When calling your plan, ask if you have an RD in your network. You can also search the provider directory online. If you discover your plan doesn't cover nutrition services, ask if your plan will make an exception. Sometimes they do, especially with a physician referral.
