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 Odessa nutritionists
Lauren P.
Sorry it has taken me a while, but let me tell you how GREAT this man is. I had contacted him about a few weeks ago to see if he would be a good fit for me as a nutritionist. After reading his bio and seeing he had a background in working with athletes, I was hooked. I am an athlete who participates in powerlifting and strongman competitions, so finding someone that understands how to fuel my body while being in an appropriate caloric deficit is hard to say the least. When I inquired Brian, he responded right away. I was amazed and appreciative how fast he responded, and how ready he was to help! We hit it right off the bat and agreed that this would be the best fit for both of us. Sadly, because of some surprise financial hits, I communicatedwith him about maybe hiring him in the future instead. He was very understand and still called me anyway to help me get on track and gave me so amazing advice in a hour phone call. Brian was very thorough with the nutrition that I would need, helpful on how I should eat my macros and was just overall a joy to talk to! It truly felt like I was getting advice from a close friend and he never tried to pressure or sell me on anything. I really appreciated him and his genuine vulnerability with me and understanding my past issues with food. In the future I will be hiring him. I definitely recommend him for anyone that is an athlete and anywhere in between. I’m excited to work with him again!
