Insurance Coverage

Our services are covered by many major health insurance providers. However, each contract varies depending upon the agreement with your employer. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company to determine if nutrition services are covered. If you do not have these benefits, talk you your employer’s benefits department to get medical nutrition therapy covered as a benefit.
