Frequently Asked Questions
What is a credible nutrition professional?
Anyone can call themselves a "nutritionist". The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics states that a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) has met the academic and professional requirements established by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. This includes earning a Bachelor's degree and completing an accredited internship. RDNs must also pass a rigorous, national-level exam and complete continuing education requirements to maintain their credential.
Are these sessions covered by insurance?
Custom Nutrition does not bill insurance, it is self-pay only at this time, although you may use a Health Savings Account (HSA) card to pay. An invoice can be provided to you to file for potential reimbursement from your insurance plan for Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) services.
