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.
