Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.

Katie had been fantastic in helping me to create a sustainable nutrition plan that fits my lifestyle while helping me to loose weight. Katie’s customizable programming makes the process very affordable and easy to manage. I’ve benefited greatly from the weekly nutrition plan and lost over 8 lbs in the first month!

Nolan was excellent. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He really helped me with my nutrition goals, and I will definitely be working with him again in the future.

I sought out a nutritionist when I was truly at a standstill and unable to hold myself accountable as far as health and nutrition. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I had tried multiple other weightloss plans/diets that were super restrictive and just didn't work out long term - which ultimately made me feel very hopeless and lost. That all changed the moment I started working with Coach Brian, he helped me build healthier habits that were sustainable, realistic and effective. Coach Brian is truly and expert and has played a pivotal role in my weight loss journey. He provided me with the tools and resources that I needed in order for me to change my life for the better and adopt a healthier lifestyle overall. I know what I should be prioritizing when cooking my own meals (or when ordering out). I know how much movement/exercise is necessary if I want to see results. I know how to read nutrition labels properly and foods to avoid. etc. Ultimately, if you're ready to really change your life/prioritize health and fitness I definitely recommend reaching out to coach Brian. He is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, responsive and will definitely hold you accountable throughout this journey.

This has been such a difficult year for me and I have developed some health problems that have induced significant weight gain. I was feeling hopeless, but CMW was the community and support I needed. I appreciated how comprehensive this program was. I LOVE Kristin's workouts, they are challenging, always different, and keep you motivated and feeling accomplished. I learned so much about nutrition and how to make sustainable changes that felt good. I learned about hydration and the importance of movement outside of exercise. I hadn't had a consistent workout practice in years and now I workout 4-5 times a week, I walk everyday, I drink tons of water, and I am more mindful of my nutrition. I loved the coaches, the CMW community, the mindset work. I would highly recommend this program for someone looking for a woman-led health community that is all about customizing health for you. The coaches all have different strengths and respond quickly. You really never feel like you're on this journey alone.

Shaun is absolutely amazing! He is willing to do whatever it takes for you to reach your goals! Probably one of the best qualities about him as a trainer is that he is realistic! Not the boring “broccoli, brown rice, and chicken,” he takes what you like and tries to find a happy medium so that you aren’t overwhelmed but are still able reach your nutrition and physical goals at a steady pace. Now that also means we have to be realistic too and understand we need to sacrifice haha totally awesome trainer who won’t give up on you!

The one program that works! I've tried multiple nutritionists and diet program, and Brian's was the one that worked for me and made the most sense. He has a system that enables you to make good food choices to help you with your goals. He doesn't just give you plans to follow, but actually educates you around how your body takes in food which allows you to make healthy choices beyond just your time with him. He teaches you how to make a lifestyle change and I can say it works. Definitely recommend him if you're looking for something that'll stay with you for a lifetime vs a trend/phase.

I have been meeting with Katie now for about 8 months and couldn't be happier! I had seen a nutritionist in the past and knew it worked for me, so when the lbs came back on, I knew I needed to find someone. I can't tell you how many nutritionists I reached out to who either, never got back to me, had outrageous prices, or said they would only see me if I had a chronic illness.. So when I found Katie, and she responded quickly, had affordable and flexible pricing based on how many times a month I wanted a check in call, and was also a great person to talk to, I was sold!! I am currently down almost 20lbs (still 15 away from my goal) and I don't think I could have done it without her. Trust me, it wasn't easy for me and there were months where I barely lost any weight or even gained a few pounds and she was always there telling me to be patient, it takes time. I may have fought her out of frustration along the way but I'm so grateful she believed in me and didn't give up on me when I was about to give up on myself!! She is always very responsive when I have questions outside of our call time or when I post my updated weight or progress pictures. She always maintains a positive attitude (even when she tells me to lay off the Chick-fil-A!) and it really goes a long way throughout this journey. So if you're looking for someone to go on this weight loss adventure with you, she is a great choice!!

Nolan has exceeded my expectations. I hired Nolan 5 months ago when I felt defeated from the 25 lbs I gained, out of a toxic relationship , in therapy and on anxiety drugs. His nutrition and work out plan were easy to follow and got me back on track. I have learned so much when it comes to eating healthy. It’s a new lifestyle for me that I can continue to follow. I am happy to report that I have pretty much lost the weight I gained, no more therapy and no more anxiety drugs!! His plan has helped me refocus my mental, emotional and physical states. I feel amazing and love seeing my results every week. I am almost halfway thru from my year plan with Nolan. He works with you if you plan to travel and is very responsive to you. I am so happy I found Nolan 5 months ago and that I am 100% feeling amazing. Well done, Nolan!
