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.  

Reviews for Cincinnati nutritionists

My experience working with Brian far exceeded my expectations. I have struggled for years with diet culture and Brian coached me out of that and on to real lifestyle changes! I never would have imagined it could be so simple and having someone to go to around the clock makes it even easier. I would recommend Brian as a nutrition/lifestyle coach to anyone. He takes all your needs into consideration from physical health to mental health to scheduling issues to daily needs and the list goes on and on. He truly personalizes it to whatever makes sense for YOU! I could not be happier with the work we’ve done together and all that he has taught me. 100/10!!

If you are looking for not only a nutritionist, but someone who can really change your life in ways that you might not realize, Brian is the choice for you. I was a little hesitant to hire a nutritionist but decided to pull the trigger after months of a consistent downward spiral that had me at about 250 lbs (I am 5'9, usually stay at about 180). From 250 I had worked hard over the course of 16 months to get down to around 190 but wanted the extra help to see how far I could push myself, which is what led me to Brian. The start was a lot of education, but it wasn't overwhelming. Brian's approach helped my make changes that were easy to fit into my daily routine. He guided me and worked with me to find what works best vs. just giving me a plan to follow. I think this will resonate with many people as you can still enjoy the foods you like but you will learn how to incorporate them in a way that doesn't ruin the progress you are making. Brian is ALWAYS available for contact and he will reach out if you start slacking. He shares his own personal experiences and his daily routine and it really feels like he is more than a nutritionist, but more of a distant friend. I tend to stay in relatively good shape, workout consistently, so I wasn't sure if Brian would be able to add anything on that side of things to work in tandem with the changes we were making to my eating...boy was I wrong. He added new workouts and challenged me in new and rewarding ways. I have seen significant improvement in my overall body composition from the workouts in addition to my new diet. Overall my experience working with Brian has been nothing short of spectacular. In addition to helping me lose 20 lbs of stubborn fat, working with Brian has given me a new sense of confidence and drive to push myself to new limits. He has a way of connecting with his clients that I find admirable. I never felt like just another client of his. If you looking for someone to help you get to where you want to be, and live a cleaner, healthier life, please give Brian Parana a chance, I doubt you will regret it.
