Will my insurance cover the services of a Registered Dietitian?
There is no definitive answer for that question, as coverage varies from provider to provider. Coverage of dietitian/nutrition services is rare for conditions other than diabetes or renal failure and typically require a referral from your doctor. Regardless, insurance does not typically cover 100% of the fees in any situation and you will be responsible for at least some of the costs. If you have a Health savings Account (HSA)/ flex spending account, it is typically acceptable to use those funds to pay for dietitian/nutrition services, even without a physician referral. We advise that you contact your insurance provider prior to the appointment to verify your insurance.
What insurance does At Home Nutrition accept?
|Insurance Company||Benefits Overview|
|Medicare||Medicare may cover medical nutrition therapy and certain related services if you have diabetes or kidney disease, or you had a kidney transplant in the last 3 years, and your doctor refers you for the service. Medicare covers 3 hours of one-on-one counseling services the first year, and 2 hours each year after that. If your condition, treatment, or diagnosis changes, you may be able to get more hours of treatment with a doctor’s referral. A doctor must prescribe these services and renew their referral yearly if you need treatment into another calendar year.|
