How can I find a top-rated dietitian that accepts Aetna insurance?
To find a registered dietitian who accepts your Aetna plan, log in to your member page, where you can search for in-network healthcare providers. Aetna covers nutrition counseling for preventative care and for treating chronic conditions like diabetes, eating disorders, high blood pressure, and obesity.
Aetna does require a physician referral that states nutrition services are medically necessary to prevent or treat a condition. The nutrition provider you choose must be credentialed, which includes licensed nutritionists and registered dietitians.
Nutrition counseling for certain conditions, like asthma and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is not covered by Aetna because the effectiveness of nutrition therapy has not been proven for these disorders.
When searching for a dietitian online, you likely have specific health concerns in mind. To ensure you connect with a nutrition provider who specializes in what you’re looking for and who is in-network with Aetna, consider using Nourish.
Nourish dietitians accept Aetna insurance and specialize in a wide range of conditions from gut health to diabetes to eating disorders. You’ll be able to find the care you need and use your insurance benefits to avoid steep out-of-pocket costs.
Are video visits with a Dietitian online covered by Aetna?
Aetna covers virtual visits, or telehealth services, at the same cost as in-person provider visits. Coverage varies by plan, but virtual nutrition counseling provided by registered dietitians is typically covered.
Nutrition telehealth services covered by Aetna include individual and group medical nutrition therapy, which is when a dietitian provides evidence-based recommendations for a specific health condition.
How can I book an appointment online with an Aetna Dietitian?
Before scheduling a virtual visit with a dietitian through Aetna, it’s important to ensure your provider is licensed to practice in your state. Telehealth and licensure laws vary from state to state, and many states don’t allow dietitians to practice across state lines.
This is a common source of frustration, as many great dietitians offer virtual care but are unable to work with people across the country.
How much does an appointment online with an Aetna Dietitian cost?
The cost of an online appointment with a dietitian through Aetna will vary based on your specific insurance plan. Depending on your diagnosis, your visit may be covered at 100% for preventative care, or you may be charged your plan's copayment for seeing a specialist.
Finding a dietitian who accepts your insurance and is a good fit for your care needs can be challenging. Many people choose nutrition providers who are out of network to ensure they receive the best care, but this can be very costly, with a nutrition visit averaging $150 nationally.
