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.

If you are lost and don’t know where to start about understanding nutrition or what you could be doing better, please reach out to John! I first hired John for my boyfriend and he was awesome, so I decided to hire him for myself. This is the best experience I have ever had with my food relationship and overall understanding nutrition better. Not only does he have awesome tools, he is also very responsive and was able to answer any questions I had! Amazing investment of my money and I am very grateful!

Alexa is helping me solve what (for me at least!) is a big, overwhelming nutritional puzzle. I’m impressed with her apparent wealth of knowledge and how thorough she is. She communicates with me effectively and has been a pleasure to work with thus far.

Brian is great to work with, I hired him for a 5 week program and have extended it. He knows his stuff. I was really interested in help with nutrition, I didn’t think I was eating terribly, but had a lot of questions and wanted a professional to set me in the right direction and also help with meal planning for my family. Couldn’t be happier with Brian. Thanks! Drew Clough

Brian has been amazing to work with. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in October 2022 and immediately began looking for a dietitian/nutritionist that could help me get my digestive issues turned around and get me back on track. I spoke to a number of nutritionists but he was the only one I really felt was empathetic to my situation and could talk with me in a way that I understood; knowing I didn’t have all the answers in this moment, knowing I didn’t know anything at all. I was very overwhelmed with this new diagnosis and he did an amazing job at starting simply and not adding to my overwhelm. He has a ton of user friendly, helpful material that he readily shares and is a fantastic communicator. I did his 12 week program where we had one call a week and unlimited text support. He checked in with me regularly and was never bothered by my endless questions. It was exactly what I needed. He is very professional but at a personable level. I highly recommend Brian.

Brian is a wealth of knowledge in terms of both dieting and overall all nutrition/health. Any question I had whether it be about diet, exercise, or even just stretching post workout, he had great answers or resources he could point me to. He is always available by text for real time questions about what to eat and planning out meals, and I enjoyed recapping my progress on our phone calls each week. I would highly recommend!

Before I found Nolan I was 240 pounds with absolutely no idea how to lose weight. I didn’t know what the right diet and workout plan was to follow. But after 4 weeks of following coach kings plan I managed to lose 17 pounds. He made a plan for me that was simple, with workouts, and a diet that were easy to follow. If you’re struggling to lose weight and are looking for a great workout/nutrition plan to follow then don’t hesitate to contact Coach king you won’t regret it.

Frieda has been instrumental in teaching me how to eat healthier and lose weight. She’s always available to guide me and answer my questions, whether it’s day, night or weekend. She responds immediately! I always look forward to her easy-to-follow mean plans delivered to my email every week. I don’t have to think about what to eat or how much to eat. She does all the work for me. Since I’ve been following her meal plans, I have lost weight and feel healthier and more energetic. Frieda is a very professional, attentive and knowledgeable nutritionist. I highly recommend her!

I was at a point where I felt lost and knew I needed a change. I started researching nutritionist and happened upon Brian. After our initial call I felt confident Brian could help me lose weight and gain a healthier lifestyle. Brian has tons resources from articles to workout ideas. The biggest thing that I loved was the daily text support knowing he was only a text away. He helped me figure out how to enjoy dining out and what to choose. My favorite quote: Everything can be eaten in moderation. He truly want to help educate you to fit your lifestyle. Every week I dropped weight and never felt as if I was dieting.
