Expanding Payment and Coverage

The Academy has information, resources and toolkits to support member efforts to promote the integration and expansion of MNT into health benefit plans and expand the scope of "billable" services provided by RDNs. These tools can be used to build the case for integrating RDNs into primary care practices, communicate the evidence-based and effectiveness data of MNT services provided by RDNs, seize the opportunities under The Affordable Care Act and health care reform, and make the case for RDN-provided nutrition services with insurance companies and employers.
