Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)

 

MNT is provided by a qualified Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) that is licensed in Ohio (LD). Health professionals agree that MNT is one of the first treatments that individuals should receive to improve conditions such as Diabetes and Chronic Renal Failure (without dialysis). It is also helpful for Heart Disease, Hypertension, and Obesity but may not be covered by insurance.

Medical nutrition therapy provided includes:

  • One-on-one meeting(s) with a RDN
  • Review of what you eat and your eating habits
  • Thorough review of your nutritional health
  • Personalized nutrition treatment plan
  • Setting up nutrition goals to improve health

Medical nutrition therapy is covered by a variety of insurance plans. Under the Medicare Part B Program, you can receive nutrition services to help improve your health. Medicare Part B covers medical nutrition therapy for diabetes and kidney disease. If you have private insurance (such as through your employer), check with your insurance plan for specific medical nutrition therapy coverage details. Your plan may cover nutrition counseling for a wide variety of chronic conditions and health concerns, such as heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

The Area Agency on Aging 3 RDN is accepting referrals for individuals that are 60+ in our service area and they will be seen in their home or at our office, whichever they prefer.
