Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

Reviews for Lenexa nutritionists
Linda V.
Wow! I am so glad I worked with Veronica regarding my health and weight loss. She has totally blown me away regarding her aptitude for getting to the hidden problems we don't even know are there. I was thin when I was young but as I aged, I yo-yo dieted myself over the last 20 years into a lot of added weight. With that weight came problems including osteoarthritis. I had tried nearly every type of weight loss program but I would always gain weight back plus much more. Now that I was over 60, I was concerned due to severe pain that was making it hard to walk and do my exercises. I had to try something else and decided I needed a nutritionist. Veronica took the time to listen and asked questions, getting the information she needed to solve the puzzle. She gave me ideas and I followed everything she asked me to do...these were relatively simple and straightforward ideas that were so powerful. By the next week, I was seeing results and had so much less pain! I didn't know it was even possible to feel this much better. As the month continued, I saw more and more pain relief which has totally changed my mindset and given me so much encouragement. Oh, and the added bonus, I wasn't even trying and had lost 6.5 lbs during the month. I wish I had met Veronica years ago instead of running after the diet solutions that are pushed in the media. Thanks Veronica! You have changed my life.
