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 just started my journey with Scott's wife Michelle. We got together and went through my nutrition diet. I've been suffering with yeast overgrowth for a while. She's a very easy person to talk to with your problems, which is very important.

I am working with Emily and am in week 3. I love the overall professionalism, ease, dedication, and knowledge that she brings everyday! This really was a perfect match for me, as I wanted to learn about nutrition, health, and what is best for my body. I have a long way to go, but I am thrilled with the results thus far.

I really found Brian by chance just looking for a nutritionist on Thumbtack. Once we had a phone conversation I realized that he could provide me with a path I needed to achieve my life change goals. I am 61 and was weighing 213 lbs and knew that if I was going to have the quality of life I wanted moving forward changes needed to be made. Brian didn't send me a diet or diagram my meals - he taught me how to structure my meals to achieve optimum results. I worked with Brian of 5 weeks texting almost daily and talking weekly. During that time I took a two week vacation that normally would have led to weigh gain AND had my rotator cuff repaired. During that time I went from 213 to 194 and am still dropping weigh towards my goal of 190lbs. Brian gave me all the tools to make a nutritional life change and I am extremely grateful.
