How can I find a top-rated dietitian that accepts UnitedHealthcare insurance?
Depending on your UnitedHealthcare plan, you may need a referral from your doctor to meet with a registered dietitian. Once you have a referral, you can search for an in-network dietitian through your UHC health plan account.
UnitedHealthcare classifies medical nutrition therapy (MNT) as a preventative service covered under the Affordable Care Act. MNT is evidence-based nutrition care a registered dietitian provides to help manage or prevent different medical conditions.
Though coverage varies by plan, some examples of conditions qualifying for nutrition care under UnitedHealthcare (UHC) include prediabetes, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, weight management, and pregnancy.
If your plan covers nutrition services, be sure to select a registered dietitian (RD) or registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). UnitedHealthcare typically doesn’t cover nutrition appointments with non-credentialed providers, like nutritionists.
Are video visits with a Dietitian online covered by UnitedHealthcare?
Many UnitedHealthcare (UHC) insurance plans cover virtual visits with a registered dietitian. These plans typically cover virtual visits similar to in-person office visits. You can log in to your health plan account to search for a local provider (a healthcare professional providing care in your state) who offers virtual care.
A virtual visit, also known as telehealth, occurs in real-time and can be conducted via video, phone, or email. Nutrition services are classified by UHC as “virtual specialty care,” in the same category as neurologists and orthopedic doctors.
At Nourish, our video-based care by registered dietitians makes it convenient to get high-quality and evidence-based nutrition counseling from the comfort of your home or on the go. Nourish is in-network with UnitedHealthcare, with 95% of our patients paying $0 out of pocket when using insurance.
How can I book an appointment online with a UnitedHealthcare Dietitian?
To book a virtual appointment with a registered dietitian who is in-network with UnitedHealthcare, ensure the provider is licensed to work with people in your state. Licensure laws vary by state, and many dietitians cannot provide virtual care to people outside the state they practice in.
Finding a dietitian who offers virtual services in your state and has the specialties you are looking for can be challenging.
How much does an appointment online with a UnitedHealthcare Dietitian cost?
The cost of an appointment with a dietitian depends on your specific UnitedHealthcare (UHC) plan. Visits classified under preventative care are typically covered at 100% when working with an in-network provider. However, some plans may require a copayment or coinsurance depending on the diagnosis you are seeking nutrition care for.
In rare cases, your UHC plan may not cover online dietitian services. Nationwide, an initial appointment with a registered dietitian costs between $100 and $200 out-of-pocket. The primary factors influencing rates are the practice location and special certifications or specializations.
