Does my insurance cover a nutritionist or dietitian?

This depends on the type of insurance plan you have. Check with your insurance provider to ensure you have dietitian (often spelled 'dietician') coverage as part of your benefits (often listed under paramedical services).

As always, check with your insurance provider first to see if you have coverage.

Will I have to pay upfront?
