A conversation with our advisor and expert RD, Leslie Gaillard
Dietetics, Insurance, and Healthy Bytes
With the Affordable Care Act, nutritional counseling is now covered by many insurance plans. For the first time RDs can be reimbursed for both MNT and preventative services. It's an exciting time. We've seen practices grow at much faster rates by taking insurance because they can quickly expand their client bases and earn more money.
Unfortunately, many dietitians we've spoken to have told us that taking insurance is high on their list of fears when it comes to starting private practices. It doesn't have to be that way. Healthy Bytes is designed to protect dietitians from the pain of insurance.
