Medical Nutritional Therapy

Our plan provides you with an opportunity to have unlimited visits to see a registered dietician or other qualified nutrition specialist at no cost to you.

The prevalence of chronic, inactivity-related diseases is on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one in two people in the U.S. has at least one chronic health condition-such as heart disease, cancer, hypertension, diabetes or obesity-and one in four adults has two or more chronic conditions.

As a health plan, we are committed to empowering our members to adopt and sustain healthy lifestyle behaviors that prevent, mitigate and even reverse chronic diseases.
