Promoting Nutrition Services
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.
Data show that MNT is linked to improved clinical outcomes and reduced costs. Learn how you can help expand the coverage of MNT using these resources from the Academy.
