Maybe you’re a dietetic intern or are wrapping up your rotations, or maybe you’ve been running a private practice for years and taking payment out-of-pocket. Regardless of where you are in your career, as an RDN or RD-to-be you’re probably familiar with the option to take health insurance. You’ve likely heard about the benefits: insurance companies are covering nutritional counseling at higher rates than ever before, physicians are more likely to refer patients to you if you’re already in the same networks as them, and you’re able to work with a number of new clients who may not otherwise have access to your services.
