Health professionals agree that nutrition education is one of the first treatments that individuals should receive to prevent or improve conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and hypertension.

Teammates and family members who are enrolled in one of the LiveWELL Health Plans may receive free visits with an Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). Appointments are available to participants who have an appropriate physician’s referral for Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT). MNT is only available at select locations.

Up to six visits may be covered (no charge) in a benefit year to provide appropriate guidance and education for diet-related conditions or risk factors, including but not limited to:

  • Pre-Diabetes
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Renal or Kidney

Medical Nutrition Therapy provided by an RDN includes:

  • Review of what you eat, your eating habits and diet-related conditions
  • Thorough review of your nutritional health
  • Personalized nutrition treatment plan
  • Review of risk factors listed above

The first visit with the RDN typically lasts one hour. After the first session, the RDN will schedule follow-up appointments to check on your progress and see if changes are needed in your nutrition goals and treatment plan.

How to Get a Referral

  • Contact the Dietitians’ office of your choice for guidance in securing the referral; or
  • Talk to your physician about a referral

Note that not all Nutrition and Diabetes services are covered at 100%. Please confirm coverage with your caregiver and MedCost prior to service.
