What to Expect in a TeleNutrition Visit

Telehealth allows you to connect over a secure internet site with a licensed nutrition professional from the convenience of your home. Medical nutrition therapy is regulated on the state level, therefore, you will need to choose a professional licensed in the state you are residing in.

Each professional listed on our site has received a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in nutrition or dietetics, has completed an intensive internship practice, and has passed a national registration exam, as well as ongoing continuing education accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Your health insurance cannot be billed for telehealth nutrition services but you may have coverage through your health insurance to visit a registered dietitian/nutritionist for individual counseling. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this tool to search for a local dietitian.  The Affordable Care Act requires coverage for nutrition counseling for a BMI over 30 and many states mandate nutrition education services for persons with a diagnosis of diabetes.
