Nutrition Counseling

Our Philosophy

What are Nutrition Services? Are you going to put me on a “diet”?

Kebabs

While certain medical conditions do require targeted nutrition therapy, what most people think of as a “diet” is something designed to be short-term and restrictive to achieve a specific goal, such as losing weight. Unfortunately, a large body of research shows that this approach isn’t very effective long-term.


Who should see a dietitian?

Most people benefit from an honest walk-through of their lifestyle and nutrition habits to help identify challenge areas and collaborate on realistic solutions. Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is an effective tool in a wide range of situations, including:

Will my insurance cover nutrition services?

Most major insurances cover nutrition services to some extent, although individual policies vary and some may require a physician referral. The best way to know what your plan covers is to call your insurance company and speak to a representative about your nutrition coverage details.

It can be helpful to ask about billing codes 97802 and 97803, the most common codes used for MNT. From there, we can help you determine if you will qualify for “medical necessity”.
