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.

I held an interview with Suruchi regarding a vegan nutrition for an article I am writing for a project. She was patient​ and was clear about her answers. It is obvious that she has a lot of knowledge and years of experience in what she does.

I've only been working with Cassi for a short time and already she's helped me identify and implement several key improvements in my day to day nutrition. She's always available and responsive and I really value her insight!

I reached out to a few different nutritionists on thumbtack and Brian showed far more interest in gathering information about me an my situation than any of the others. The questions he asked in our texts assured me that I was going to be getting advice and direction specifically tailored to me and what I wanted to achieve. Through my consultation with him, I gained a wealth of knowledge and information that I can use going forward to start building a healthier life. Highly recommend!

Claudia was an absolute delight to talk with and incredibly easy to open up to. She is beyond understanding and works hard to help you understand not only your relationship with food but small steps to help progress over those hurdles. I had a very difficult family event happen that put a lot of my progress at a standstill, but she went above and beyond to stay with me and help bring me back on track. While I can’t say anything about my weight, she has definitely helped me create better habits and would highly recommend any and everyone do her 8 week nutrition boot camp.

My experience with Kyle has been nothing but positive. He’s always responsive and able to adjust a plan based on whatever factors come up (injury, work travel, change in goals, change in metabolism or body response). Even the times I might start to question, “is this going to work?” and just a few days later my body responds (positively) in ways I would not have expected. Definitely great with the programming (nutrition AND training). I have shoulder injuries restricting the ability to press and bench press heavy, but he found effective workarounds allowing me to still build strength and size in muscle groups that I was targeting (chest and shoulders). The injuries limit my ability to back squat (shoulder racking the bar is not the best feeling for my shoulders now), and he adjusted the programming so I could still hit my legs hard and effectively. I would recommend Kyle to anyone regardless of their goals.

Just do it! You know you wanna! He will change your mindset and your life for the better! When I came across Coach Brian I was somewhere in the middle of my fitness journey, I had already lost 20lbs but had taken a break for a while and just plateaued. I had a great fitness regimen but my food was definitely lacking. With my upcoming wedding less than a year away, there was no time like the present to finish my journey. Brian has taught me much more than I ever thought possible but by far the biggest thing I have learned from him is how to manage my day to day and still lose weight. As a 30something without kids living in a big city, I have an active social life and Brian has helped me manage my impromptu happy hours that seem to pop up from time to time. So far I’ve lost about 11lbs in 12 weeks, which is great for me! As I continue to work with Brian, I hope to lose even more weight and having Brian in my back pocket is the best support I could ask for! I have worked with other nutritionists and trainers in the past and Brian is by far my favorite and the best guy with the most helpful information and insight. I hope to know Brian for many more years, as he will always be my go to guy when I’m looking to lose weight. Brian is a great guy with a lot to offer, but don’t take my word for it, just read the reviews!
